Power and "Post-production" of Imagination: an Inquiry into Images of Creative Dissent from Istanbul

How can we understand the arise of a new form of resistance, operating through the production of ¿imageries¿ to create alternative knowledges? Are they actually able to dissolve the concentrations of power to a state of balance? Or do they unintentionally reproduce the very forms of power that they oppose to? With the adoption of a Foucauldian understanding of power and discourse production, this work presents and analyzes the creative dissent expressed by three groups based in Istanbul. Callon & Latour's concept of ¿black boxes¿ are employed as mediums through which power can translate and reproduce, in an age defined by constant proliferation of ¿images¿ and ¿spectacles.¿ This book will draw attention to the ways in which creative dissent could be used as a form of resistance, underlining its potential challenges.
