EINE ALMAN STADT by Ipek Burçak
180 x 260mm, 72 pages, risograph printed, perfect bound, softcover, 2023
Eine Alman Stadt is a collection of photos of a mid-size German city, its houses and Vorgärten, greens in between the houses, social spaces, eternal states, flowers at Halit Yozgat memorial and includes a bush-shaped text on the backside of the book. Eine Alman Stadt makes connections between small city timelessness revealing an assumed universality and neutrality, how a city is a sum of privately owned small islands, sometimes with literal flags on top, and gardens and far right ideologies.
The book is printed in RISO in multiple colors, the photos are taken with film cameras between 2012-2017 during Burçak's studies in Kassel.
