This seminar week is the third part of our trilogy on places of projections and desires.
“Nevada” took us to Southern Spain, where the Spaghetti Westerns were shot at a time when Europe still desired to be like the United States. “Zurich – Texas” took us to the US-Mexican boarder and places where America wants to become like America again. And “Georgia – South of East” takes us to a young country in the Caucasian region of Eurasia that wishes to be like Europe. We will be based in the capital Tbilisi, following the traces of Socialism, mining, religion, wine-making and contemporary music. Our special guest is Professor Beate Fricke (University of Berne), an eminent scholar on Medieval art and connoisseur of Georgia.
