With the Archive of Transition, we set out to record different dimensions and velocities of change within Tbilisi the capital of Georgia. We talked to artists and cityplanners, architects and activists, priests and politicians, to understand what change means to all of them.
In the last ten years, Georgia has undergone an extensive process of architectural change. It can be seen above all in the capital city of Tbilisi, which, in the face of ambitious construction projects and large-scale foreign investment, awakens, as it were, with a new face every morning. In this way, it paints a picture of a vibrant city in an age of global upheaval.

Over the past decade, Georgia has experienced a process of intense transformation that is particularly reflected in its capital – where ambitious building projects and increased foreign investment has led to a sense of constant transformation stretching from the old town to the outlying districts.
Attending to this transformation demands new discussion among the city’s inhabitants and raises important questions: What is to be preserved and what is to be destroyed? What can be owned and what belongs to everyone? What do we want to remember and what can be forgotten?
