How does video activism challenge dominant power structures?


The latest episode of the podcast Dritte Klappe looks at the use of video as an activist tool by practitioners from Turkey who moved to Germany after the Gezi Park protests. Dr. Şirin Fulya Erensoy, Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF since September 2021 explores the use of video as a tool of social protest in her research. In conversation with Özlem Sarıyıldız, Video Activist from Turkey, Artist, Filmmaker, Editor, and co-founder of the first web-based video-activist collective from Turkey, KaraHaber, this episode highlights the importance of generating content outside the conventions of mainstream media, creating a collective memory for future generations, as well as the performativity of the practitioners, and its implications for the prospects of social protest.
