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 Ayşe Polat, Fatih Akin, Michael Haneke, and Tony Gatlif as well as video essays and installations of artists such as Kutluğ Ataman, Ursula Biemann, Ergin Çavuşoğlu, Maria Iorio and Raphaël 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.

Her work focuses on migrant and diasporic cinema in Europe, transnational cinema, experimental and avant-garde cinema, projected image art, site-specific art, and performance. She received a B.A. in Cultural Studies from Sabanci University, Istanbul, and a Ph.D. in Performance Studies with a designated emphasis in Film & Media Studies from the University of California, Berkeley.
Her academic publications include articles in journals such as New Cinemas: Journal of Contemporary Film and Turkish Studies Association Bulletin as well as chapters in edited collections such as Orienting Istanbul: Cultural Capital of Europe? and Turkish German Cinema in the New Millennium. 
Her book, Mobility and Migration in Film and Moving Image Art: Cinema Beyond Europe (Routledge 2016), examines cinematic and artistic representations of migration and mobility in Europe since the 1990s. Bayraktar's most recent research project explores the ways the genre of dystopian science fiction is employed in visual arts, cinema, and performance to investigate shifting definitions of "human" and its boundary with the machine.
Before coming to CCA, she was a postdoctoral lecturer in the Humanities Program at Boğaziçi University (2012-2015). At CCA, Bayraktar teaches courses such as "Introduction to the Arts," "The City and the Moving Image," "Mobility and Migration in Cinema," "Film Practices and Genres," and "Graduate Film History."

Review:

"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, Nilgün 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
