The Prague Biennale, an international exhibition featuring some 200 artists, pays special attention this year to young painters from Georgia. The 11 featured Georgian artists are united not by style or specific themes, but by a high degree of engagement with political and social issues in their rapidly changing country.
While some Georgian artists fear that the political climate at home does not support artistic expression, the Prague Biennale offers a forum for outspoken artists who do not shy away difficult themes. Their work probes issues such as militarism, social breakdown, and the power of the state, each in his or her unique aesthetic style. Play audio slide showProduced by Margot Buff and Salome Asatiani.
