Drone Vision: Warfare, Surveillance and Protest comes to Nicosia

By Anne Canalp

Drone Vision: Warfare, Surveillance and Protest showcases an artistic response to the visual and material consequences of drone technologies in the context of Cyprus, the southeastern Mediterranean and the Middle East.

The show launches at 11am on Sunday, May 20 at South Nicosia’s Municipality Arts Centre Old Powerhouse gallery with a guided tour in English by the artists, followed by a meal and courtyard DJ music.

A lecture by Mick Wilson, head of the Valand Academy, Gothenburg University, entitled Selfies With the Dead: A Preface to the Question of Political Community with the Dead, is lined up for 7pm on Monday, May 21.

South-based visual artist Efi Savvides looks at mechanisms of power and authority relating to a stateless Kurdish family from Syria. The Hassan family has staged a struggle for Cyprus citizenship outside the presidential palace since March last year after mounting a 57-day hunger strike in 2014. The show at the Old Powerhouse, at 19 Palias Ilektrikis, near the Archbishopric in South Nicosia, may be visited from Tuesday to Saturday between 10am and 9pm until Saturday, July 28.
