city [un]archived

Onomatopee 112

city [un]archived is an installation encompassing the informal archive collected by Tbilisi InSights collective. The archive selection presents glimpses into private, unintentional archives, a collection of various media and different forms. The collection was brought together with the aim to reflect on and trigger imaginary concepts and critical alternatives of living within the private and public spaces of a modern city today.

The installation aims to outline a personal, non-linear, perspective on the transformations of daily life in Tbilisi. The collective considers the very foundation of architecture – people, those who inhabit, envision and change the given and future architectural structure.

CITY [UN]ARCHIVED - TWO DAYS PROGRAM

A two-day programme will accompany the city [un]archived book launch in the presence of all publication contributors.

How do personal archives operate in the context of public and private space, the individual and the collective? What role do they take up in linking past and present towards a critical discussion of the future?city [un]archived takes the city of Tbilisi as an experimental laboratory, and works within its contested spatiality. The visual and textual contributions aim to be cross-read in order to establish links and challenges for the reflection on cities in today’s predicament.

This publication intends to step out of the respective setting of Tbilisi by tackling different categorizations and conflicted dynamics of being, to open up a broader and intense discussion, in terms of geography and systematization, on alternatives of living in present day cities.
