In September FLUCA – Austrian Cultural Pavilion returns to Plovdiv after its Sofia tour – and is ready to meet 2019 – the year in which the city will be the European Capital of Culture.
But the start of events is much earlier. On 6 September, the container will become the musical box full of surprises which is being prepared for the party for artnewscafe’s birthday.
On the next day (7 September) is the opening of the FLUCA season – Plovdiv. For the opening will be presented a video installation by Reinhold Zisser, director of Notgalerie, Vienna. He is preparing a completely new work, especially for the container: a film that brings together a visual artist, a musician and an actor. The film, shot in Austria and Plovdiv, is seemingly magical and strange, but there are references in our surrounding reality.
The big news is that FLUCA will be part of the program of viennacontemporary – the largest international art fair in Vienna. This time in Notgalerie will be presented the solo show of Kamen Stoyanov titled “Fantasy is more important”, curated by Boris Kostadinov. The exhibition includes a film and photographs that tell stories about a village where a house is built with the roof down, a castle is being built next to it, and neighboring is a hotel from whose balcony Einstein is overlooking.
For the presentation of FLUCA at viennacontemporary, a special brochure will be printed with the history of the container so far.
The so-called “Enzi” (the architectural objects where the audience can sit) will be placed in front of the container at Otets Paisiy Street. They are renovated with designs by Vasilena Gankovska and Emil Kirov and will become the colorful accent of the renovated street.
