Mobility and Migration in Film and Moving Image Art explores cinematic and artistic representations of migration and mobility in Europe from the 1990s to today. Drawing on theories of migrant and diasporic cinema, moving-image art, and mobility studies, Bayraktar provides historically situated close readings of films, videos, and cinematic installations that concern migratory networks and infrastructures across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Probing the notion of Europe as a coherent entity and a borderless space, this interdisciplinary study investigates the ways in which European ideals of mobility and fluidity are deeply enmeshed with forced migration, illegalization, and xenophobia. With a specific focus on distinct forms of mobility such as labor migration, postcolonial migration, tourism, and refugee mobilities, Bayraktar studies the new counter-hegemonic imaginations invoked by the work of filmmakers such as Ayse Polat, Fatih Akin, Michael Haneke, and Tony Gatlif as well as video essays and installations of artists such as Kutlug Ataman, Ursula Biemann, Ergin Cavusoglu, Maria Iorio and Raphael Cuomo. Challenging aesthetic as well as national, cultural, and political boundaries, the works central to this book envision Europe as a diverse, inclusive, and unfixed continent that is reimagined from many elsewheres well beyond its borders.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a strong new scholarly voice that will change how we think about European cinema, migration, and the way we conceptualize the relationship between film and screen-based art. Rigorous and sophisticated, Nilgun Bayraktar offers us an elegant tour de force of by-now canonical films of European minority cinema and intriguing video essays and screen-based installations art about mobility into and within Europe." -- Barbara Mennel, University of Florida, USA

"The book's focus on experimental films and video installations, which engage with migration and other forms of transnational mobility but which have so far received less scholarly attention than the feature films of Europe's diasporic auteurs, makes it a most welcome and important addition to the field of transnational cinema and moving image studies." - Daniela Berghahn, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
