Local Air Lines Project Armenia

Mapping of abandoned airports in Yerevan

Armenian artists Karin Grigoryan amd Vaghinak Ghazaryan take a journey in search of the history of local airports in the Soviet Republic of Armenia.

See the Calendar and the Booklet

High in the mountains the airports are today abandoned or transformed into living houses, they are obliterated or serve for military purposes. The airstrips are to be agricultural lands again. There is a very strong need to make the past of the civil aviation clear as it seemed for artists to be the only way to get out of historical and of ideological ruins. The research resulted in a video work, a map and a booklet which contains texts and photo essays, with an official history of local airlines written by the former head of civil aviation.
