The Two Rivers of Mesopotamia

Lecture by Rojda Tuğrul (Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna)

    Rojda Tugrul is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher, whose practice is concerned with the
    notion of identity in relation to space. In her lecture The Two Rivers of Mesopotamia she
    presents her artistic research project that analyses the effects of war on ecological and cultural
    heritage within the socio-political framework of Kurdish inhabited territories.
    Focusing on ongoing dam projects in Southeast Turkey, she explores how power mechanisms
    unfold in different relationalities and temporalities of the habitat around the Tigris and Euphrates
    rivers in the context of war and displacement.
