According to an investigation conducted by Amnesty International in 156 countries across the globe, protest, in addition to seeking refuge, was the theme that gripped millions of people the most in 2022. In light of the crises and wars of our times, the question of WHAT TO DO? concerns us all. What futures can be rediscovered, and what will motivate us to act? The 6th Berliner Herbstsalon focuses on these questions and will be held in 2023 in two parts: In GEZİ – TEN YEARS AFTER. Ein Prolog im Frühling, we take the 10-year anniversary of the protests as an opportunity to analyse the current political upheavals and hoped-for revolutions. Following the presidential and parliamentary elections in Turkey, we ask: what state do the people, does the republic find itself in at the moment, especially after the catastrophic earthquakes? Gezi was and is a symbol for working together to build up a country worth living in. Together with participants active in Gezi and now living in exile, primarily in Berlin, GEZİ – TEN YEARS AFTER attempts to trace this legacy for the future.
