The erasure of Armenian cultural history in Nakhichevan is one of the most underreported acts of cultural destruction in the 21st century. The year 2020 marks the 15-year commemoration of the final phase of this systematic destruction.
This program will be the second in a series to mark the 15-year commemoration of the final destruction by Azerbaijan of the khachkars of Jugha (Old Julfa) in Nakhichevan. This event will focus on the khachkar as it is used by diaspora communities, their representation in the work of Armenian artist Vardges Sureniants’ (1860-1921), and what can be learned from inscriptions on khachkars, including those that once stood in Jugha.
