Video as an activist tool used by Turkish activists in Germany
As the number of Turkish citizens seeking asylum in Germany and the EU has been on the rise since the 2016 attempted coup d'état in Turkey, video explorations play an essential role in revealing the censored knowledge and the current climate within Turkey. The EU-funded VIDEOACT project will explore the use of video as an instrument by activists of Turkish descent living in Germany. The project will conduct textual and discourse analysis of the videos and interviews with the producers to understand how they depict life in Turkey and in Germany. VIDEOACT will estimate the reception of these videos to understand their social and political impact.
