The Sustainable Legacy of Agnès Varda celebrates the feminist legacy of French director and visual artist Agnès Varda, who died in 2019 after more than six decades of innovative work in film, photography, and installation art. Co-edited by Colleen Kennedy-Karpat (Bilkent University, Dept. of Communication and Design) and Professor Feride Çiçekoglu (Istanbul Bilgi University), the essays collected here explore how creation, connection, and environment form the core of Varda's artistry.

With chapters inspired by the "Virtual Varda" conference hosted at Bilgi in 2020, marking the first anniversary of Varda's death, the volume discusses a wide range of work, from the French New Wave classic Cléo from 5 to 7 (1962) to contemporary documentaries The Beaches of Agnès (2008) and the Oscar-nominated Faces Places (2017) as well as selected art installations. The book's fourth section also features preeminent scholars from around the world writing about how they have incorporated Varda's art and feminist pedagogies into their classroom.
