Rhythm of the Everyday: Tbilisi Migrant Stories

Dr Richard Baxstrom completed a residency in December 2014 with the arts organisation GeoAIR in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, which resulted in the completion of a short film entitled Rhythm of the Everyday: Tbilisi Migrant Stories.

This resulted in the completion of a short film entitled Rhythm of the Everyday: Tbilisi Migrant Stories. The theme of the residency concerned the urban realm of Tbilisi, the ‘new' migrants living there and the respective rhythms, rituals and everydayness of the city. Artists and researchers in Georgia participated in the workshop offered as part of the residency. The film was loosely organised according to Henri Lefebvre’s principle of ‘rhythmanalysis’ and consists of sections created by the six workshop participants, who are: Tinatin Khomeriki, Natalia Mosashvili, Maka Chkhaidze,Mariam Kapanadze, Teo Bichinashvili, and Teo Burki. Rhythm of the Everyday was premiered with a public showing in a Tbilisi Underground in December 2014, and has since been shown as part of the Social Sounds Project 2.0 programme during Innovative Learning Week (Feb 2015) at the University of Edinburgh.
