Martyrdom and Visual Cultures
In this display, four synchronous slideshows juxtapose varied visual cultures of martyrdom and resistance in Turkey and the Islamic world. Together, these images present multiple ways that resistance and martyrdom intertwine, often blurring binaries such as secular / religious and political / artistic within dynamic visual cultures.
Screen One: They are Among Us: Martyrdom in the Gezi Protests
Screen Two: Martyrs in Public Art from the Tunisian and Egyptian Revolutions
Screen Three: Martyrdom in Islamic Art and Visual Culture
Screen Four: Popular Visual Culture of Resistance in Modern Turkish History
This display is preparedby Patrick Visel, Johanna Sellman, and Yeliz Çavuş to accompany Christiane Gruber's September 2016 talk :
|"Resistance everywhere" : the Gezi protests and dissident visions of Turkey is a JadMag collection of articles on Gezi protest culture edited by Anthony Alessandrini, Nazan Üstündağ, and Emrah Yildiz.|
