Supported by Goethe-Institut Georgien

As a basis for the idea of exhibition a small-size book published in Tiflisi in 1926 was taken, representing a collection of Grigol Robakidze’s early dramas. A basis for the cover design of the book is Franz Marc’s famous canvas “Tiger.” At the exhibition the artifacts created by Irakli Gamrekeli, Kirill Zdanevich, Wassily Kandinsky, Lado Gudiashvili, David Kakabadze, Elene Akhvlediani, and other artists tell us about the united strong wave of theater and cinema, literature and art created by the epoch of Modernism. It left a significant mark in Georgian art and culture. It finds one of the distant sources in German Expressionism.
