"3 Times Caucasus"
Exhibition: June 30th - August 21st, 2011
An showcase by artists from Russia, Georgia and Abkhazia
Curator: Friederike Sehmsdorf
Once again the language of art is building a bridge between peoples.
The exhibition is an initiative of: "Society for reconciliation and understanding in the Caucasus" ("Gesellschaft fuer Ausgleich und Verstaendigung im Kaukasus e. V." / GAViK, Berlin).
The Caucasus as a melting pot of many cultures is one of the oldest cultural regions of the world. It is home to various ethnic groups. The artistic landscape of this region is just as varied and multilayered as the countryside of the Caucasus.
The exhibition brings together artists with different backgrounds and persuasions. It shows both, local works as well as works which deal with the international modernity.
