Hybrid artist-journalist-broadcaster, Lado Darakhvelidze creates flexible platforms for people to participate in his work which is an equal mixture of aesthetics and politics. His artistic practice focuses primarily on the phenomena of information media and its sociopolitical impacts. In his work, he deals with social and political changes and represents these in personal narratives. Darakhvelidze studied at the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and his work has been shown at the 11th Istanbul Biennial, What Keeps Mankind Alive (2009), Biennale Cuvee, Linz (2010), The Kitchen / One Big City (2013) and Manifesta 10, St Petersburg (2014), Millennials, Museum Arnhem (2016) among others. In 2012 Darakhvelidze joined the Artist Pension Trust.
