supported bylogo Luxemburg:
IDENTICAL CITY by bello benischauer is created in context to the unknown Renaissance Painting called “The Perfect City” 

ThePerfectCity: around Piero della Francesca (approx.1475), which addresses the Central Perspective of City Buildings without showing any inhabitants. What does Identity in times of a global union mean (concerning Western Countries), what does culture mean in a City itself, last but not least: has a single inhabitant still something like a deep Understanding, a cultural consciousness in anonymous city spaces?
