Double Aliens

A road trip to the eastern borders of Europe: The Georgian photographer Daro Sulakauri and Latvian film director Uģis Olte visit the Samtskhe- Javakheti region in the south of Georgia, with a mostly Armenian population. Caught between borders and ethnicities, no one here has deep roots in this place. For everyone living here, the notion of “homeland” will always be under debate. (Dominik Tschütscher)
