Poppy—Trails of Afghan Heroin

Installation by Robert Knoth and Antoinette de Jong

Brutal gang warfare, deadly addiction, illegal money laundering, blatant corruption, and love for money coupled with the epidemic spread of AIDS: set up as a multi-media installation, the project Poppy documents in an impressive way the dark side of globalization, reflected in the faces of dealers, prisoners, prostitutes, addicts, border soldiers, and policemen. For over twenty years, Robert Knoth and Antoinette de Jong have been tracing the paths of heroin that lead from Afghanistan through Central Asia and the Balkan to East Africa, Dubai, and Western Europe, and wind up in the streets of London.
