What Happens To The Geographical Borders When The Land Itself Moves? –– Cihad Caner
During his residency at Blitz, Cihad Caner investigated the current concern of mass migration by focusing on the role of water. The world is witnessing some of the largest refugee flows since the Second World War. Meanwhile, water crises are highlighted as one of the most pressing global challenges. In this context, migration and refugee flows are increasingly explained in terms of water scarcity perpetuated by climate change. For example, the drought of 2007-2010 in Syria as one of the main causes of the ongoing uprising and subsequent civil war, and the Mediterranean sea becoming a subsequent mode of passage for the people who had to flee.
What Happens To The Geographical Borders When The Land Itself Moves? endeavours to reveal the ecological as well as political aspects of water.
