Slanted Special Issue Georgia /Armenia
|not yet published
In August 2023, Slanted Publishers embarked on a journey from Tbilisi, Georgia, to Yerevan, Armenia. The aim was to explore the impact of the war in Ukraine on the local culture and design scene. Through numerous conversations and interviews, profound insights were gained into the lives and work of the people, highlighting the diverse nature of their respective perceptions. However, the postresearch and discussions were overshadowed by Azerbaijan’s renewed offensive on Armenia in September 2023. Following the offensive, a mass exodus of the Armenian population from NagornoKarabakh to Armenia began. The introductions to this issue were authored by Wojciech Górecki and Krzysztof Strachota, both esteemed experts in the region working for The Centre for Eastern Studies (OSW) and leading the Department for Turkey, Caucasus, and Central Asia. In this edition, readers will also find photo essays contributed by students from the University of Applied Sciences Dortmund, who have been fostering deep connections with Georgia for several years.
