Abstract

Starting from the analysis of the so-called of Gezi Park movement that in June 2013 has reshaped the youth-scape in Istanbul, the thesis reconstructs the public and the private forms of memory transmission of the 1980 - 1983 military coup in former revolutionary fighters families. The military coup can be considered as a historical watershed that radically changed the cultural, economic and generational features of the country. The coup provoked a radical de-politicization of age cohorts, grown after this date that have been represented in public space as apathetic, apolitical and consumerist by previous generations. The text is based on a two years fieldwork research and focuses on the plurality of shapes and uses of memory, the weight political experience of the seventies and the painful memory of the coup have in the relationship between generations, and the continuity and the discontinuity that young generations establish with memory frameworks conveyed by previous ones. These frames are characterized by the moral economy of the fighter and by the martyr code and can be seen as agonistic memory in a memory field that is characterized by huge hierarchies of power, where official history still represents the militants as internal enemies or terrorists. The protests of 2013 appear as a biographical and political breaking point that redefined the political space through new public languages. By involving a heterogeneous group of people as leftist militants, anti-capitalist Muslims, nationalists, ethnic and religious minorities, LGBTT organizations and the so-called apolitical youth it can be also understood as a cultural creativity area that reshaped the processes of construction and dismantling of social and symbolic boundaries among groups. Objects of analysis are also the construction of generational bounds in the young protagonists of the movement protest and in the so-called seventy-eight generation. Finally, I worked on the processes of memorialization of Gezi Park movement.
