Abstract [en]

Whereas in the early years of 'video age' of 1960s video art and video activism were inseparable from each other, later on the two became associated with quite separated spheres of daily life, video art becoming the common practice of high-culture in museums and art centers, and video activism moving more into the marginal strata of society, focusing more on oppressed and underrepresented people. However, as video becomes a more common tool of resistance in the hands of political movements of the developing countries, these two separated spheres, art and politics with the means of video, are now once more becoming more connected with each other, providing an important tool of self-representation, political activism and alternative media production. This paper focus on practices of video, conducted by the Turkish video collective Karahaber, and how its videos function as an interconnected interplay of video art and video activism.
