Creating a Culture of Perpetual Fear and Crisis Through Mandatory Consumption

Museum of Barbarism displays the bloody clothes and photos of displaced teeth of a Turkish family murdered in Cyprus in 1963. In-depth interviews show the Museum heightens tensions and sense of crisis between TurkishCypriots and GreekCypriots. Culture of fear and crisis is institutionalized through schools by way of mandatory consumption.
