The Cultural and Social Narratives Laboratory NGO was founded in Yerevan, Armenia in 2018. It is a multifarious platform created by a group of independent researchers, artists and cultural practitioners aiming to reveal the issues of contemporary social and cultural narratives which have an important role in the formation of civil societies in Armenia and other South Caucasian countries. CSN Lab has a broad range of thematic areas of activity, including, but not limited to, memory studies and memory activism, cultural rights (gender studies, queer culture, tangible and intangible cultural heritage etc.), unfolding consequences of complex past and (neo)colonialism, urban and public spaces, and conflict transformation (dialogue through culture).
Untitled Tbilisi, is an art institution, uniting artists and art activists from the South Caucasus, in support of the rights of women and sexual minorities, via art projects in the region. The art space was established in 2019 in Tbilisi. Since its beginning, Untitled Tbilisi has been collaborating with several art organizations from the region and has hosted a number of joint and solo exhibitions, workshops, artist talks, public discussions, and film festivals.
Pause / Play: Culture under Pressure is organized by Kulturschafft e.V. and CSN Lab, in partnership with Untitled Tbilisi, with financial support from the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
