Ani – The forgotten city of the Silk Roads

Overview

Gain some insight into how today’s political situation challenges the preservation of our shared cultural heritage

The city of Ani lies at the border between Turkey and Armenia, and was in its heyday in the 1000th and 1100th century. Back then, it was the capital of the Armenian kingdom, strategically located by the Silk Road between China and Europe.

When the Silk Road lost its function as a trading route between the East and the West, Ani lost its central function. The city was subjected to conquers and natural disasters. Earth quaked destroyed a lot of the beautiful architecture. As the centuries passed, Ani was abandoned and forgotten.

However, a unique collaboration between Armenians, Turks and international partners has recently opened for the possibility that Ani is examined and preserved. In 2016, the city was included on the UNESCO world heritage list.

The exhibition Ani – The forgotten city of the Silk Roads documents the magnificent ruin city and the important work that is put into preserving it. However, it also shows how a lot of work remains, and how today’s political situation challenges
