About this book

This book offers a post-representational approach to a range of fiction and non-fiction films that deal with labour migration from Turkey to Germany. Engaging with materialist philosophies of process, it offers analyses of films by Thomas Arslan, Christian Petzold, Aysun Bademsoy, Seyhan Derin, Harun Farocki, Yüksel Yavuz and Feo Aladag. Shifting the focus from the longstanding concerns of integration, identity and cultural conflict, Gozde Naiboglu shows that these films offer new expressions of lived experience under late capitalism through themes of work, social reproduction, unemployment and insecure work, exhaustion and precarity, thereby calling for a rethinking of the established ideas of class, community and identity.

Reviews

“Post-Unification Turkish German Cinema breaks new ground for the field of migrant film studies. Working through a broad range of post-unification fiction and documentary films, Gozde Naiboglu convincingly shows what is to be gained for our understanding of such films when approaching them not through the frameworks of representation, but by taking seriously such films’ capacity to generate affect and thus to participate in the constitution of contemporary social processes. What emerges from this methodological shift is how these films posit work as a “superior agential power” that links films by Thomas Arslan, Aysun Bademsoy, Harun Farocki and others to a broader context of European art cinema. Naiboglu’s carefully observed and well-researched analyses demonstrate how these post-Wall filmmakers redefine affective states such as fatigue and exhaustion as a vital corporeal force bearing the potential to resist neoliberal conditions of production and subjectivation.” (Marco Abel, Professor of English and Film Studies at the University of Nebraska, USA)

“Gozde Naiboglu’s Post-Unification Turkish German Cinema: Work, Globalisation and Politics Beyond Representation is the book many of us have been waiting for. It breaths fresh air into a stalled discourse by connecting labour—the central concern of late twentieth-century migrants from Turkey to West Germany—to twenty-first century issues of global politics. Such an innovative approach produces exciting and dynamic scholarship on contemporary Turkish German cinema.” (Barbara Mennel, Associate Professor of German Studies and Cinema Studies, University of Florida, USA. Co-Editor of Turkish German Cinema for the New Millennium: Sites, Sounds, and Screens, 2012)
