Taus Makhacheva, Types du Caucase, Postcard 8
Published 2014

Unique postcard
10 x 15 cm
Handwritten text by the artist
Signed by the artist

10 unique 19th century postcards from Taus Makhacheva’s personal archive as seen in the artist’s book Types du Caucase.

Each postcard represents a “pittoresque” group from various tribes, families, nationalities or representatives of diverse professions of people from the Caucausus, presented in a style of colonial pictorialism emblematic of the exotization perpetuated by Russian/French speaking elites of the time.
Here, the artist has handwritten distinct texts by different writers, politicians and historians from the beginning and middle of the 20th century, depicting their various views on the Caucasus:

“Their houses are made of straw, reed and wood, and it would be a shame for a noble man to build a castle or a dwelling house with strong brick walls, because they say that it is due to a strong dwelling house that the meanness and cowardice of a man (and the inability to protect himself) are exposed.

Georgio Interiano, Way of Life and the Country of Cherkess People, 1502
