Diyarbakir: The Cry of Silence, Antoine Agoudjian and Armenian Memory


For Antoine Agoudjian, it all began on December 7th, 1988, when an earthquake struck Armenia. Between 25,000 and 30,000 Armenians lost their lives. Agoudjian was only 27 at the time, and he returned to his country of origin to aid the survivors. He began a long and introspective work on the memory of the Armenian genocide, a lifetime’s work, which he has been pursuing for nearly 30 years. Today this adventure takes us to Diyarbakir, in Anatolia, for the opening of his exhibition Le Cri du Silence on April 24th, 2015—one century to the day after the raid of April 24th, 1915, perpetrated by the Young Turks, which officially marked the beginning of the genocide that led to the deaths of 1.5 million people.
