€ 15add to cart
Composed of artistic accounts that critically reflect on recent urban and social changes in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, this book unveils multifaceted perspectives on a city trying to negotiate its complex heritage, intensely contentious present and potential for the future. It also serves as an alternative guidebook to be explored in situ, or read from afar.
//////BIO'S EDITORS ///
Data (David) Chigholashvili works between social anthropology and contemporary art. His works are strongly related to the specificity of their contexts. Through direct commentary or subtle forms, he aims to present and question issues of the surroundings, while exploring connections between various disciplines and ways of expression.
Nini Palavandishvili is a curator based in Tbilisi. Nini researches social and political conditions and their interpretation in cultural production and contemporary art contexts. She is interested in artistic practices that find a language through which it is possible to speak about political and social matters.
Marike Splint is a theater maker from the Netherlands based in Los Angeles, specializing in performance in public space. Fascinated by the theme of belonging, she explores the relationship between people, places, and identity. She serves as a faculty member in the Department of Theater at UCLA.
