Vision Talk:
Anthony Hüseyin

“O” – an Intersectional, Interdependent Trans-Disciplinary Resistance with Anthony Hüseyin (Singer/Songwriter – Performance Artist, Vocal Coach, Curator, Berlin)

In the letter “O”, which has neither beginning nor end, the line runs in circles and repeats its shape again and again. Anthony in their Vision Talk will share how their work evolved since the phenomenal Gezi Park Resistance in Turkey to become the project “O”, an album that reflects the return to the rediscovery of their gender, their childhood, and their attachment to Zeki Müren, who is considered by many to be the most important queer exponent of Turkish Art (Classical) Music history. Anthony considers Müren as the first example of a nonbinary Turkish artist and a great influence on their music style. Their album alludes to Müren’s as well as contemporary electro-pop music while referring to the third genderless person pronoun in Turkish called “O”, which means “he”, “she” and “it” in one word. Thus, their concept album “O” symbolises Anthony’s personal and artistic quest as a queer, POC, non-binary musician from Turkey. Stylistically, the album “O” is a combination of contemporary electro-pop music with a pinch of techno- house-nu-disco and the Turkish Art Music (Türk Sanat Müzigi) of Zeki Müren. In their work, Anthony approaches voice as a spectrum as well as their gender and expands the normative gender constructions and thus voice.

Offering an intimate glimpse into their unique culture, resilience, and beauty, this documentary chronicles the growing movement to secure basic human rights.

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

2–5 December

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

Dedicated to visionaries and pioneering storytellers across the globe, we are an international action community of practice, working towards systemic change through the power of authentic and meaningful storytelling. Our catalytic home cinema of the commons and commoning film practices intend to co-create a nourishing influential mov(i)ement for societal cohesion and to enact integral transformation for deep planetary impact.

In 2023 we designate the EthnoKino film festival’s theme as “resilient”. We explore how human beings around the world interpret and manifest resilience. The various ways they resist, disobey and practice strength and hope in the face of adversity, challenges and injustices. From forcefully displaced populations to those born strangers to their own communities, those change-makers transforming and transcending the societies they are part of; through social initiatives, educational projects, co-creative engagements of art and poetry, and other interventions, we will explore what resilience means in its full humanity and wholeness.

Overall, in a world of immense interactions and global technological advancements, accompanied by unprecedented movements, colonialism, climate change, war and conflicts, we will look and continue to create inspiring stories addressing the world’s biggest problems in search of solutions to planetary challenges.
