Tavidan is the georgian expression for “from the mind”. The word introduces the book of Genesis and it describes the starting point of an idea, a project or a process. Tavidan forms the title of this upcoming exhibition, as it wants to describe the thematical frame within the event: to draw attention to the initial point of artistic contemporary practice and the many formal and conceptual ways it goes. Where does art begin? When does it end? In form of a dialogue between a vibrant art scene from georgia and artists from germany, Tavidan examines the origins of contemporary art and questions the significance of cultural, educational and spacial influence on art.
