Home is where the hatred is, 2010
After the 2008 South Ossetian War between Russia and Georgia, many Georgian people were forced to leave their homes in South Ossetia. In order to provide shelter for the so called »internally displaced persons« (IDP), new settlements were erected quickly after the war ended. »Home is where the hatred is« shows peoples’ lives in Tserovani. Being the biggest of the newly erected settlements, it consists of 2000 identical houses. For its inhabitants, jobs are as scarce as perspectives.
Almost everybody in Tserovani wants to relocate to their respective homes in South Ossetia but only time will tell when the dust settles between Georgia, South Ossetia and Russia – if ever. In the meantime, the citizens of Tserovani are slowly growing accustomed to the new homes they are forced to live in.
