Moskowiz + Trager's piece from 2013 presents a dialogue between the two men, while posing a deeper question: Why and for whom do artists create? Representing a range of transactions and exchanges, the video explores allegorical and utopian connections between artistic inspiration, love and the marketplace. The narrative telescopes out to include the story of its own making as the actual artist/filmmakers depict themselves debating plot line and meaning as well as the virtues (or lack thereof) of their collaboration. But are they really the ones in control? The mysterious presence of three women suggest otherwise.

Midnight Stories: The Soul
Aşkın Güngör

The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.

The Bosphorus, which divides the city from north to south, separates two continents, renders Istanbul distinct for western painters, offers the most picturesque spectacles for western artists.
