In collaboration with: The Marshrutka Project Team
The two day popup-exhibition is organised in the framework of the final conference “The Marshrutka Project: Spatial Dynamics of Informal and Shared Mobilities [Nov 8 – 10, 2018], organised by the Technical University of Berlin and the Leibniz Institut for Regional Geography (IfL).
The Italian photographer Chiara Dazi is exhibiting a preview of her ongoing photo series Marshrutkascape with images from Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Kaliningrad (Russia).
Traveling along the roads of the everyday post-Soviet landscape, her images focus on the shared taxis known as “marshrutkas” and the stories of its passengers.
Marshrutka Stories: A visual archive presents a series of short texts and images by doctoral and post-doctoral researchers of The Marshrutka Project Team (Fluid mobilities for cities in transformation: Spatial dynamics of marshrutkas in Central Asia and the Caucasus). It offers a modest and inconsistent collection of marshrutka-related narratives and visuals, exposing a tiny share of the ways marshrutkas can be an entry point in understanding post-Soviet socio-spatial and political-economic transformations.
