On vacation
September – October 2021

PHASE II of FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE – “On vacation…”, presents the line of thought in Section II. of the concept behind FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE.

Attention is brought to all topics, experiences and practices from the first decade of the 21st century to date, covering a number of areas in their Bulgarian context, such as the city, local ecosystems, artistic communities, informal environments, knowledge transfer, art audiences, cultural policies, interactions, continuity, memory, dialogue.

This phase is expressly interested in the immediate communication, encounters and cohesion within artistic communities, and also in practices outside the “center” some of which follow the grassroots model.

The activities implemented in the summer of 2021 and those currently ongoing define PHASE II of FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE as a project exploring and mapping the existing and emerging artistic communities in the cities and provinces of Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo, Varna, Plovdiv, Sofia, while providing them with informal support and involvement.

Beyond its cultural interest, PHASE II of FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE in particular raises the aesthetic and ethical question of how these topics and courses influence the themes in art, the art forms, the manifestations and presentation of art. It is not the purpose of Phase II to attempt at a critical discourse of some endeavours but it does not shy away from doing it.

The name of the second phase of FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE is inspired by the work of Luchezar Boyadjiev “On vacation…”, 2004 – in progress.

The entire concept is laid out in part two of the program text by Vesselina Sarieva FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE, available at www.futureunforgettable.com.
