Sofia Contemporary 2013
19 Apr - 12 May 2013
From past to future there is no single established truth. ‘Near’, ‘closer’, ‘together’ refer us to the place and the moment we are in, demanding a transformation in the taken positions. Thus the necessity to exercise towards a common ground which comprises mutual knowledge, hopes, and dreams; an essential for conversation.
The methods employed by the participants spring from the poetics and politics of everyday structures, in their potential for success and failure. They trigger mutual spaces of imagination, proposing new forms and environments of living, acting, and thinking together. Different participant institutions and organisations hosting the festival imply the necessity of open communication and solid networking for an elevated cultural field.
How do we imagine ourselves together today? What do we imagine together? How and what can we share? How do we become a public? In answering these questions, art does not offer relief or affirmation; it is rather a field of possibilities, exchange and comparative analysis.
