On 19th January 2007, Armenian journalist Hrant Dink was shot in Istanbul. The genocide of the Armenians, the murder of the most important Armenian voice in Turkey and the hegemonic claim of the Turkish state demand interventions. How? Remembering Hrant Dink means speaking of his courage and his political work.
ARCHIVE AND ACTION
Zeynep Taşkın (Coordinator Hrant Dink Foundation) in conversation with Elke Hartmann (Director Houshamadyan), presented by Maximilian Popp (Journalist at Spiegel, TAZ)
At first glance, political-progressive acts and archive creation appear to be opposites. A collection, however, is not just a treasure chest containing revolutionary ideas, it’s also a political act: When it touches on the border of what can be said.
A. G. A. TRIO IN CONCERT
With Deniz Mahir Kartal (Caval & Guitar), Mikail Yakut (Accordion), Arsen Petrosyan (Duduk)
Musicians from Turkey, Georgia and Armenia perform new interpretations of old melodies, thus putting the spotlight on what unites these three cultures separated by national borders. An artistic form of archival work.
