Since 1963 Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, has been split by a militarised border. In Nicosia Beyond Barriers, 35 writers from all sides of the Cyprus divide come together to write the past, present and future of their city. Cypriot-Greeks coexist alongside Cypriot-Turks, the north with the south, city with countryside, dominant voices and the marginalised. These writers move beyond Cyprus to other places that share the country's colonial history, taking in out-of-sync clocks, stray cats and bus rides to unfamiliar suburban conclusions. Together, these writers carefully bring together the fragments that make a whole picture of Nicosia, the world's last divided capital city.
