Abstract [en]

The article evaluates an academic intervention which consisted out of two photography exhibitionsin Cyprus, focussing on the memorialization of the Cyprus Problem. These exhibitions communicatedacademic research into antagonistic nationalism and aimed to trigger societal debate,empowering the more agonism-oriented parts of society, and offering opportunities for reflectionto others, simultaneously acknowledging the limits one intervention has. The article starts withreflections on academic interventions and on the agonization of conflict, and then describes thetwo exhibitions and the intervention’s objectives. The reception component, which is the heart ofthe analysis, first shows the considerable reach the intervention had, and then discusses how thevisitors argued for the analytical and critical relevance of the exhibitions, how they problematized(parts of) the exhibitions and how they triggered new signifying practices (after the exhibitions).Finally, the conclusion critically reflects on the de-naturalizing strategies of the intervention.
