Georgian artist Nadia Tsulukidze was raised under Soviet rule. She is still puzzled today by the way her late grandmother cried over Stanlin’s death, despite her fear and hatred of his regime. Nadia’s images and stories, dance and songs take the audience on a trip through power mechanisms and art as a political weapon. What is left of us if the created reality we exist in is suddenly considered false? What happens if we discover that different ideologies use similar mechanisms? And is collectivity really a poisoned term?
