Cultural politics, arts and resistance in Turkey

Higher seminar

Guest lecture with Isil Egrikavuk, performance artist, Universität der Künste, Berlin and Hülya Arik, postdoctoral fellow in gender studies. The seminar is held in English.

In this seminar, Arik and E¿rikavuk will present on interrelated issues on cultural politics, arts and resistance in Turkey through their own academic research. E¿rikavuk will talk about collectivity in artistic production as a form of resistance by drawing from examples of Gezi protests in Turkey in 2013. She will discuss notions of 'neighbourhood' and 'neighborliness' in searching for ways of sustaining hope and solidarity. Arik¿s talk will focus on the unprecedented rise of the Islamic and visual arts scene in Istanbul in the past decade and the parallel transformations of cultural institutions and policy at local and national levels. Arik will explore the multilayered processes involved in the formation of a new creative industry and a new creative class, and the paradoxes experienced in the practice of artistic creativity within the framework of a tradition that heavily weighs on a Sunni Turkish national identity.
