I also discussed one of Sophia Tabatadze’s projects there and then I joined Geo AIR upon my return to Tbilisi.Now I continue research about the transformation of Tbilisi, especially in relation with different communities and city’s visual aspects, as well as art projects that deal with it.The Academy of Arts is the old school academic type of institution, which doesn’t want to change.At the Free University of Tbilisi, founded by Kakha Bendukidze, this year the faculty of Arts and Design will open.So, we’re focusing more on working with people than with artists.In Georgia there are still not many artists who work on social issues and/or with communities, that’s the problem.Our residents, especially curators, work with our archive.We try, when it’s possible, to involve residents in projects that we realize.
Gradually we started to work in collaboration, some other people joined who shared our ideas and views and that is time when Archidrome – Contemporary Art Archive, one of the oldest directions of the organisation was born.
Yuriy Kruchak: Data, you’re an anthropologist by education, right? Data Chigholashvili: I’m studying socio-cultural anthropology, mainly working in visual and urban anthropology.
For my MSc dissertation I wrote about intersection of contemporary art and anthropology practices.
Archidrome is an archive, library discussion platform, which contains diverse material (publications, periodicals, digital media) about contemporary art and culture in Georgia, the Caucasus region, as well as international theories and tendencies.
At that time there was a lack of information about local artists, movements and art community in Georgia.
Data Chigholashvili: Our residents also contribute to the archive and the library.
