Against the socially and ecologically homogenised landscapes of ‘planetary urbanism’, the landscapes of the counter movements constitute cracks both mentally and materially in hegemonic systems. The intricately interwoven detachment of people from the politics and landscape has been revealed and ‘rights to politics and landscape’ reclaimed through emerging anti-hegemonic ideologies and practices. This chapter elaborates the contemporary debates about democracy and landscape in the age of ‘planetary urbanism’. Through deciphering the landscapes of the Occupy Gezi Park, Istanbul, Turkey, it attempts to depict how landscapes of democracy come into being and how they function.
