Using Contested Heritage to Reproduce Ideology in Cyprus: the Museum of Barbarism and Vulnerable Consumers

Sites of violence may be used to sustain conflict and reproduce ideology. This study focuses on a dark heritage site, Museum of Barbarism, in the divided island Cyprus and how captive young consumers become vulnerable through visiting the museum. Results suggest that vulnerability is a by-product of sustaining dominant ideology through state apparatuses such as schools and museums by creating and sustaining myths around events that took place.
