Katharina Stadler & Data Chigholashvili (Eds.)
How do personal archives link public and private space, the individual and the collective? Do they contribute to a critical discussion of the future? city [un]archived is a project book of photographs, maps and writings assembled by artist collective Tibilisi InSights. Using the disputed borders and fractured identity and people of Tibilisi, Georgia, as their laboratory, the collective opens up the larger global discussion on the role of geography and systematization in shaping present-day city living. Each chapter is devoted to a project and essay by one of the members of Tibilisi InSights including artist/activist Tamuna Chabashvili, social anthropologist/artist Data Chigholashvili, architect Gvantsa Nikolaishvili, conceptual artist Katharina Stadler, media artist Lado Darakhvelidze, Nini Palavandishvili, Amsterdam-based artist Giorgi Tabatadze and Berlin-based artist Sophia Tabatadze. Photographs and texts running throughout the book are intended to be cross-referenced.
