Video – 2D animation, 2’ 57''
"A chronological look into resistance in Boğaziçi University" is a 2D animated video to commemorate the resistance history of the campus since 1976, ultimately tying the historical pattern of resistance to the current protests against the highly controversial appointment of new rectors by the Turkish government, which disrespects the tradition of the university and curtails academic freedom. The university and its constituents have historically been through quite a lot of conflict in various timepoints. These conflicts have mainly happened between the authority of the university and its students and/or academics. The conflicts are triggered by often outrageous incidents that occur within the domain of the university or that of the country of Turkey. The scale of the protests, and the intensity of the events during the protests vary throughout time. The same is true for the outcome of the protests, as to whether the protesting side could get what they wanted or not in these events. However, one thing remains common, that is the culture of resistance in Boğaziçi University across the decades, embedded in its collective memory.
