Crime Scene: Cyprus


Amanda Weil Lecture given at Creative Time Summit, 2013. Read coverage of this talk by Urban Omnibus.

I lived and made work (ethnography, performance, photography, video, writing) in Cyprus in 2009, supported by fellowships from the Charles P. Howland Foundation and National Geographic Glimpse. I investigated the stagnation of post(?)-conflict spaces, trash along the border, the miraculous bi-communal sewer system, leftist communities trying to get together, the geopolitics of cheese, the Lost Donkeys of the Karpaz Peninsula, and made friends who changed my life.
