Exhibition: Every city has a rhythm. We feel this rhythm in the street noise of one city, and in the architectural geometry of another. Some have exhaust and smog in their air, some have spice smells wafting from the bazaars, some have smells of spring coming from the parks and filling the air. These elements that invigorate our senses are tools with which the city communicates with us. Sydney's architecture, kilims of Tunisia, headscarves of two women in İstanbul and the ever-changing historical reflections of Dresden...Sometimes we feel that all of these things are in fact not foreign to any of us. The sense of rhythm has connected the different cities to each other. They have established a dialogue.
