Artist Talk: Krista Papista

Artist Talk: Krista Papista

Krista Papista is an artist and music producer; born in Nicosia, based in Berlin.

Her current work focuses on reimagining the power structures of the Mediterranean; within this context she engages in developing and queering, politically induced, reinvented versions of history, exploring the way in which the development of new Mediterranean and Anatolian folklore can act as subversive counterpoints to homogeneous, nationalist narratives.

Her upcoming production, titled "Fucklore Phenomenology”, is a concept album that focuses on the dislocation and relocation of topographic narratives; switching back and forth between Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Balkan sounds and folklore, to post-punk, experimental electronica. It explores the development of an intercultural, transnational, queer network that manifests the movement, migration and scattering of people away from their homeland, and newly created spaces that transform identities and cultures. It touches on topics such as the murders of migrant women in Cyprus, micro histories that deviate from grand narratives, seeking to trace conceptual and critical affinities between the fight against nationalism, and the reinvention of folklore in the spirit of a queer phenomenology.

This talk is a part of the Academy of Fine Art’s public programme, and the talk will be hosted by Jan Verwoert. Full program here.
