This article ethnographically explores the so-called Gezi Park protest which turmoiled Turkey and Istanbul in June 2013. By focusing on the lived-experience of the demonstration, it takes into consideration practices, imaginaries and discourses of the protesters as well as the radically different backgrounds among them. The article shows how during the protest new futures were imagined and how these collective horizons pushed protesters to critically interrogate on their conflicting identities and memories, even though the liminality of the protest made impossible for them to reproduce the new expectations in the practices of their daily life.
