Partner: Georgian National Book Center
Curator: Mahret Kupka 

Tbilisi, they say, is the new Berlin. Late-night partying and scope to do one’s own thing are luring ever more people to Georgia’s capital. Located at the intersection of key trade routes for centuries, Tbilisi has always brought different peoples together – whether involuntarily, through occupation or conquest, or willingly and generously by offering refuge to those driven from elsewhere. The populations seldom merged; instead, the separate groups learned to create permeable boundaries, leading to an eclectic mix of cultures existing side by side. What can be felt from this today? In the exhibition “Lara protects me”, video works, photographs, drawings and design- and fashion objects tell the stories of various convergences.
