The Ataturk Kültür Merkezi (AKM) Opera House in Istanbul is a central symbol of the modern secular republic. During the Gezi protests in 2013, the dilapidated AKM became a site of resistance. With the digital-cinematic implementation of a politically charged, fantastic-psychedelic play of colors, Lachenmann brings the building, which was demolished in 2018, to brief “roaring life” for the last time.
Bilsart is hosting Philipp Lachenmann’s exhibition entitled “AKM(Turkish Night)” between September 1-11 in a collaboration with Tarabya Culture Academy as part of the Studio Bosporus Festival.
