SYRIAN ARMENIANS IN ARMENIA AND NAGORNO KARABAKH
Armenia has welcomed more than 20,000 Syrians since the beginning of the war there, and most of these people are Syrian Armenians. The refugees are descendants of those who fled the Armenian Genocide in 1915-1924 in Ottoman Turkey. Hundred years later, these people are forced to move again, coming this time to Armenia.
Another land populated by ethnic Armenians, Nagorno Karabakh, has also been welcoming Syrian Armenians since 2011. This land, a conflict zone in ceasefire that is being violated constantly, is still more peaceful than Syria.
The project was completed in collaboration with curator Anna Kamay
