Director: Rebecca Horn

Internationally renowned artist Rebecca Horn’s personal retrospective film, Moon Mirror Journey (2011), premiered at the Berliner Festspiele earlier this year. Her film looks back at her most important works from the past 25 years. These range from the Concert in Reverse in Münster (1987) and the Concert for Buchenwald (1999, Weimar and Ettersberg Castle) to the large retrospective of her work at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in 2007. An absorbing, poetic life’s journey has emerged from the wealth of footage, and the film is a voyage through time and space that Rebecca Horn has called her ‘Sufi journey’.
Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
