Critical Archaeologies #4 - Multiple Presents

Besides the obvious division of the city that has shaped its identity in the last decades, Nicosia centre has also been the site of intense migration. In the background of the city’s multicultural past; current inhabitants share multiple but unstable presents. In search of Nicosia’s realities, the workshop will visit KISA the Action and the Migration and Refugee Centre. KISA is a non-governmental organisation (NGO), established in 1998, as a result of the concern about the conditions of entry, stay and employment of migrants, the lack of a comprehensive migration policy and the ever-growing incidents of xenophobia, discrimination and racism in Cyprus.
