The project Marjanishvili Quarter was specifically conceptualized for the 2nd Tbilisi Architecture Biennial and focuses on the area that today, as well as historically, is recognized as the center of the left bank of Tbilisi. Its origins go back to the 19th century, when the German settlement was founded north-west of Tbilisi. The exhibition shows historical, critical, ironic and poetic aspects of this place through different contexts and media. Among other things, the project contains materials of the alteration project of the Marjanishvili district in the 1980s and 1990s.
Marjanishvili district is still developing. The residents and the urban spaces are going through changes. Different realities and habits reveal themselves; a mood of departure emerges. In temporal as well as spatial representations it is shown what constitutes the coexistence of the people of this district – what do we have in common?
