What happens when one people’s traditional food is also an international controlled substance? Turkish architect and food researcher Aylin Öney Tan goes on a deep dive into the history of opium poppy cultivation for food in Anatolia and the subsequent decades of international political interference in Turkey’s agricultural production.
“The] opium poppy has always been a source of food for Anatolian people. You have to grow your own food and you have to be self sustained, that’s it!”
