'Why Can't I Walk in My Own Country?': The LGBTI+ Community's Visual Activism in Turkey

  • 1. ROR icon Film University Babelsberg


Can radical film practices help to understand a disintegrating world? Can they have a healing effect? How can we maintain structures of solidarity in the field of radical media production for societies in turmoil and transition? And what does radical cultural practice look like in times such as ours, when everywhere we turn there seem to lurk even more acute challenges?

Edited by members of the Berlin chapter of the International Radical Film Network, this collection investigates practices of audio-visual production that act on and struggle with the conditions of our time. The contributions were created by film practitioners, artists, activists, as well as academics and critics, who all share a commitment to experimentation and insist on a pluriversal rethinking of the image in radical film, art and digital media.
