Videoccupy was a video collective founded during the Gezi resistance in Turkey by people from different experiences and backgrounds. The aim was to record and collect visual material of the resistance processes between the 27th of May and the 31st of July 2013 in Gezi Park, Istanbul. With the establishment of the collective, an archive was created, comprising the visual material. The archive has online access and is supposed to function as a visual source for collective memory.
Videoccupy was disbanded after the resistance, the bak.ma and Gezi archives were launched on an online platform in 2014. Since 2015, new content has been added to the bak.ma with new materials collected from the archives of collectives, unions, and individuals that took part and collaborated in the process and with new records that were uploaded to the system. Consequently, it has turned into an archive collective that has been active for the last 5 or 6 years.
