Beyond Turkish-German Cinema. Affective Experience and Generic Relationality
Kilerci-Stevanovic, Nazli; Lehmann, Hauke – 2018
This chapter deals with the, so-called, Turkish-German cinema. Through the analysis of concrete examples, it discusses the role of affect in conceptualizing the link between the dimension of the political and the realm of audiovisual images. Arguing against the framework of identity politics, it proposes an approach that understands the political as designating the conditions and conflicts that constitute a political community. It lays out the first building blocks for an approach that looks to concepts of affective experience and generic relationality to better conceptualize the political relevance of cinematic images.
