“There is nothing to see in Rustavi today”, the Georgians told me. (The literal interpretation of the Georgian term for ‚nothing‘ is: ‚no color‘). However, the historical remains of what used to be a thriving site of the Soviet industry are still remarkable for the keen observer. In Rustavi, Joseph Stalin once installed the biggest steel- and ironworks of the Caucasus. From 1947 on, ‚Plattenbauten‘ (prefabricated slab-construction buildings) for thousands of working families grew out of the steppe – without running water, electricity or heating. The fall of the Soviet Union proved disastrous for Rustavi, as it also caused the collapse of the integrated Soviet economy. The city of Rustavi was a key part of this economy. As most of its industrial plants were shut down, two-thirds of the city‘s population became unemployed and social problems like shrinking population numbers, high crime rates and acute poverty emerged. What happens today in the pale facades of the satellite city Tbilisis? I drifted through its orbit finding helpful neighborhoods and great hospitality, a lot of men playing cards and chess in the streets and a young generation defining new rules and having big dreams. It was like a polymorphic mixture of remaining signs from the soviet era, the strong orthodox belief, traditional legends and western dreams, the calmness in the streets and the life in the houses. In my series I combined some of my pictures of Rustavi with pictures I‘ve made from a YouTube-video of a small concert given by the international well-known ‚Rustavi Choir‘ in 2009. The Georgian style of polyphonic singing is very unique. Together with traditional costumes and dancing, it characterizes the Georgian State Academic Ensemble ‚Rustavi‘, which was founded in 1968. The style of set-design in this video reminds me of Rustavi itself. With this combination, I am trying to illustrate the process of the continuous alteration of my initially sterotypic perceptions.
