A PHOTOGRAPHIC exhibition and book launch next month focuses on how the capital's “Green Line” has changed during the past 40 years.

Exhibition reveals the changing face of the Green Line

By ANNE CANALP

Green Line: Evocative of an Archaeology of Desperation and Desire, by Austrian visual artist and lawyer Cornelia Mittendorfer, “poses questions on the perception and depiction of traumatic events” and portrays the people who shared their stories.

The Vienna-based artist thanked laboratory scientists at the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus, supporters and those who shared their stories and agreed to be photographed.

Images are interpreted by Rolf Sachsse and Yiannis Papadakis, who “locates the conflict in its geo-political framework”.

The book launched at the Diplomatic Academy in Vienna on June 12 and will make its debut in Cyprus, almost on the “Green Line” itself, at the Centre for Visual Arts Research (Cvar) in South Nicosia's Ermou Street next month.

Co-organised and supported by the Austrian Embassy, Federal Chancellery of Austria, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Foundation and the Cvar, the show of photos and essay-style texts “creates a space that is fragmented yet resonant, where memories echo with fault lines and contradictions”.

The launch is scheduled for 7.30pm on Monday, September 11 and will run until Saturday, September 23 with viewing from 9.30am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
