Koka Ramishvili uses various media and topics to react to the changes in values he observes. Post-Soviet Georgia doesn’t escape Ramishvili's continuous visual analysis. Change, the black and white video from 2005, is one of Ramishvili's most important works. Change was shown at the 2009 Venice Biennial.
The work shows slowed down documentary images of a coup in the Georgian parliament. This 'male ballet' flows into scenes from R.W. Fassbinder’s film Die Sehnsucht der Veronika Voss (The Desire of Veronika Voss). The work shows an ironic contradiction between the male choreography of the coup – the struggle for power plays an important role here – and Fassbinder's feminine, melodramatic scene of declining vitality and death.
