Abstract [en]

From its early introduction in mid60s, video camera has been an important tool of self-representation, political activism and alternative media production in the hands of numerous individuals, groups and movements all around the world. Whereas in the early years of the 'video age', video art and video activism was inseparable from each other, with the following decades the two became associated with quite separated spheres of daily life, video art becoming the common practice of high-culture and high-end museums and art centers, and video activism moving more into the marginal sectors and stratas 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. This paper will 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.
