Caring For the Shaky Ground

Post-Soviet space is characterised by vertigo – the condition of perpetual instability for those who remain affected by colonial violence. This vertigo is materialized in forces within the soil,  destabilised by Russian colonialism. This project analyses the Crimean Tatars’ decolonial solidarity through their relation to the earth and irrigation systems in Crimea. The platform accounts for the multiple ways in which the indigenous Crimean Tatars have resisted the twin shadows of colonial actions, which have been imposed from both Russia and the West.
