1960, 1971, 1980, 1997 ... are years when the Turkish military staged a coup. Nothing has wounded the political culture of today’s Turkey more deeply than the experience of its own fragility. The traumatic upheavals have inscribed themselves into the biographies of entire generations. With his new work “Serenade,” Berlin director and actor Tamer Yiğit takes the attempted coup in the summer of 2016 as his starting point, shedding light on the politicised individual in the ongoing state of emergency between provocation and rebellion. Working with punk and folk musicians from Istanbul, Izmir and Berlin, he develops audiovisual images to tell of a permanent breakup and menacing dystopian circumstances.
