Black Sea Files. Ursula Biemann

About

Swiss artist, theorist and curator Ursula Biemann examines the giant oil pipeline which opened in May 2005 and passes through Georgia to the Turkish port of Ceyhan to create a direct link between the worlds biggest energy resource and the world sea system. Starting at the shallow offshore oilfields in Baku, capital of Azerbaijan, the ten video files follow the trajectory through the Caucasian corridor, engages with Azeri and Georgian farmers and Russian prostitutes on the way, crosses through Kurdish and Turkish territories to terminate on the Mediterranean harbour near Ceyhan. Black Sea Files tracks the logistic technology of the pipeline, comment on the urban and rural transformations, engage with the people who live along side its trajectory and reflect on the oil history and politics of the region.
