Kostadinov is well acquainted with FLUCA as he participates in 2017 in conceiving the concept for the development of the project for 2018 and 2019 in the context of the platform's partnership with "Plovdiv 2019". Boris stepped on FLUCA's stage also as a curator of the May 2017's exhibition by the Bulgarian artist Plamen Deyanof (see more here).

From his position as a director of FLUCA, Boris will be responsible for the artistic program of the pavilion and for the overall management of the project, along with the teams of the Open Arts Foundation, the Austrian Embassy in Sofia and the "Plovdiv 2019" Foundation.
