TALK: Black Sea Files: A Territorial Research and Art Project on the Caspian Oil Geography
Tuesday, March 2, 2010 / 4:00 PM
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
The artist speaks about her video essay investigating the transformations activated by a new transnational infrastructure, the BTC oil pipeline, which pumps the Caspian Crude from Baku passing through the Caucasus and Turkey. The pipeline is a geo-strategic project of some political impact, not only for the powerful players in the region, but also for a great number of locals: farmers, oil workers, migrants, and prostitutes.
