Remapping Europe - A Remix Project

  1. Does your husband sugar his tea? What colour is your wife's toothbrush? Which side of the bed does your wife sleep on? Alicja Plachówna (PL) could answer such questions in the middle of the night without hesitation. That is why her husband Boyan isn't "illegal" in Poland.
    "Proof" is a playful yet bitter story about an exam in love. The author tells a real story of facing red tape, visiting offices and being visited by public servants - all the machinery was started when she married a Macedonian and the two started to live in Poland.

  3. When Cedoux first came to the UK, he spoke no English.
    He had to try and navigate his way through London, picking
    up occasional words here and there. First Steps (Sorry + Please) immerses the viewer in his experiences. While the bulk of the dialogue isn’t understandable, we can understand only the words presented to us, with the occasional ‘Sorry’ or ‘Please’ – the first words Cedoux learnt in English.

    Made by Cedoux Kadima, produced by the British Film Institute in 2013 as part of the Remapping Europe Project, supported by the European Commission.

  4. 4 bankruptcies, 3 cities changed, what else could go wrong?

    ‘Saddler’ by Memduh Can Tanyeli (1985), Turkey, tells the story of Ethem Turan Saraçlar; one of the last leather masters and saddlers in Turkey, who pursued to continue his profession from one city to the other. The story is told through the eyes of his grandson, combining personal family footage with images of the memoirs of the ‘Saddler’.

    Produced by MODE Istanbul, Turkey in 2013 for Remapping Europe, a Doc Next Network project remixing prevailing imagery of migrants.

    Remapping Europe project is an investigative arts project that aims to contribute to an inclusive cultural practice and a new imagery in and of Europe by connecting young creative media-makers and artists living in Spain, Poland, Turkey and the UK, who have migrant perspectives, to wider European inter-generational audiences. The project involves creating new methods for expanded education, workshops for creative media-makers, a free-use media collection, a research publication and a seminar.
    Remapping Europe is a project of Doc Next Network, an international partnership of independent cultural organizations working with young people, supporting their documentary and other media productions; its partner is MODE Istanbul in Turkey. Through its efforts, Doc Next seeks to redefine “documentary” and to create a link between the traditional media and the constantly developing world of free culture. To this end, the activities of Remapping Europe stem from one underlying principle: re-mixing of media as a method to re-view, re-investigate and re-consider prevailing imagery of migrants in European societies; ultimately, to ‘re-map’ Europe visually, geographically and mentally. An important result of the project is the archival and creative exposure of present-day perspectives of young (future) citizens on migration, as captured in creative media. It contributes to the European cultural heritage and is a future point of reference in our collective memory.

    “Saraç”, Türkiye’nin son deri işçilerinden ve saraçlarından biri olan Ethem Turan Saraçlar’ın hayat hikayesini torununun gözünden anlatıyor.

    Remapping Europe projesi İspanya, Polonya, Türkiye ve İngiltere’de göç olgusuyla yaşayan ve bu konuya duyarlı olan genç multimedya yaratıcılarını ve sanatçıları her nesilden geniş kitlelerle bir araya getirmeyi, Avrupa ve çevresine dair kapsayıcı bir kültürel uygulamaya ve yeni bir algıya katkıda bulunmayı amaçlayan araştırmacı bir sanat projesidir. Proje kapsamında, genişletilmiş (expanded) eğitim için yeni yöntemler yaratmaya yönelik çalışmalar, medya yaratıcıları ve sanatçılar için atölyeler, herkesin kullanımına açık bir medya koleksiyonu, bir araştırma yayını ve bir seminer yer almaktadır.
    Remapping Europe, gençler ile çalışan, belgesel ve diğer medya yapımlarını destekleyen bağımsız kültürel kuruluşların oluşturduğu uluslararası bir ortaklık ağı olan Doc Next Network’ün projesidir; Türkiye ortağı MODE İstanbul’dur. Doc Next, gerçekleştirdiği çalışmalarla ‘belgesel’i yeniden tanımlarken, geleneksel medya ile katılımcı ve özgür bir kültür anlayışı arasında köprü kurar. Remapping Europe aktivitelerinin temel prensibi de, önceden yaratılmış ve çeşitli arşivlerde yer alan görsel-işitsel materyallerin bir araya getirilerek ve “karıştırılarak” yeni medya yapıtlarının ortaya konması anlamına gelen “re-mix” metoduna ve özgür kültür bilincine dayalıdır. Bu metodu kullanarak hedeflenen, Avrupa ve çevresindeki toplumlarda yaşayan göçmenlere dair varolan baskın imgeleri ve anlatıları yeni bir belgesel anlatısı çerçevesinden bakarak gözden geçirmek, araştırmak, değerlendirmek ve sonuçta Avrupa’yı görsel, coğrafi ve zihinsel olarak yeniden tasarlamak ve hayal etmektir. Bu proje ortak kültürel mirasımıza katkıda bulunmak ve kolektif hafızamızda geleceğe yönelik bir referans noktası oluşturmak amacıyla tasarlanmıştır.

  5. Migration is like motherhood. Once you become a mother, you stay a mother for the rest of your life. It's the same with migration. Once you become a migrant, you stay one.
    These are the words of Natasza Czarmińska (1950-2004) spoken in the film by David Sypniewski. "Nowhere" is a personal story-impression. Its protagonist is the Polish singer who migrated to France in the 80s. Her son, the author of the film, was born in Paris. „When I was a child I thought of myself as French and I forbade my parents to address me in Polish. I still have a little French accent in my Polish, and a Polish accent in my French” – he says. "Nowhere" is a travel into oneself, in search of one's roots and the ingredients of one's present self.
