"NEW TURKEY" by Murat Germen

The book Edited by Dr. Necmi Sönmez, art historian and curator, this book titled "New Turkey" is a comprehensive survey of Germen's artwork from 2000 until present day. The book is supplemented with essays by Murathan Mungan, a leading Turkish author and includes an interview between Barbara Hofmann-Johnson, the curator of Photographische Sammlung Köln, and the artist, as well as personal anecdotes. Designed by Yesim Demir and published bilingually in Turkish and English, this is his first monograph.

 

Through his photography, Murat Germen dealt with the recent economic boom in Turkey and its consequences by focusing on various stages of this development, such as urban transformation, industrial growth, social and physical construct, art and capital relations, excessive investment on highways and finally the Taksim Gezi protests and resistance that constituted a milestone in late Turkish history. He produced challenging visual experimentations with his internationally acclaimed series "Muta-morphosis" and continues his artistic practice on urban photography with his recent "Facsimile" series. While Muta-morphosis maximizes the urban content by shrinking very long panoramic photos into a photographic frame with a typical ratio, Facsimile instead extends certain parts of cities to attract attention to particular dynamics among various urban components.
