Sabine Bitter works with Helmut Weber. They have collaborated on projects addressing urban geographies, architectural representations, and related visual politics. Their series of photo- and video-works such as Recent Geographies, Caracas Hecho en Venezuela and LIVE LIKE THIS! engage with specific moments and cultural logics of globalization as they are materialized in architecture as a frame for social meaning.
