Explore the drawings, sketch books, and sculpture maquettes created by the late University of Oregon professor Jan Zach (1914-1986). Curated by HFMA collection curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition will draw from the museum’s extensive collection of Zach’s art, and from the Pacific Northwest Artist Archive housed at Willamette University’s Hatfield Library.

Zach was born in Slany, Czechoslovakia and came to the United States via Brazil and Victoria, BC to teach sculpture at the University of Oregon for 20 years. As a practicing artist, Zach explored themes of light and movement in nature.

Event Image Mass Mediated Populism after the 2016 Failed Coup in Turkey
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Matthew de Tar, Visiting Assistant Professor of Civic Communication and Media, will speak about his recent research. On July 15, 2016 Turkish president Erdoğan became the first world leader to use social media to head off a coup attempt in progress. Although the image of a CNNTürk video still of President Erdoğan addressing the nation via an iPhone on the FaceTime app circulated widely, it is a different image that shows the source of Erdoğan’s power. This power emerged in images of the protests and popular resistance to the coup as it unfolded, and live coverage of a massive rally at Istanbul’s main airport during which Erdoğan declared victory over a coup attempt that was not yet suppressed. As people responded to Erdoğan’s call to take to the streets, they constituted his authority visually. Nightly “democracy rallies” continued for three weeks after the coup and culminated in the largest political rally in Turkish history in Istanbul on August 7 (the “Democracy and Martyr’s Rally”). In making Erdoğan’s authority visible, protesters actually produced that authority. This talk examines the wide circulation and manufacture of populist images in the weeks following the 2016 Turkish coup, based on field notes and research I conducted in Turkey during August 2016. Along the way I will fill in some historical context and discuss the widely reported rift between President Erdoğan and US-based cleric Fethullah Gülen.
