RASSIM® - Krassimir Krastev (born in 1972) is among the most prominent heralds of a radical change in the concept of art in the Bulgarian art scene during the 1990s. His most popular series is "Corrections", in which the artist uses his own body to reproduce current social stereotypes – the typical attractive macho man seen in ads, the muscular bodybuilder, the junkie, the "other". This concept has turned him into an emblem of not only the Bulgarian but also of the international art scene. RASSIM has taken part in the exhibitions "Body and the East", Museum of Modern Art, Ljubljana (1998); "After the Wall: Art and Culture in post – Communist Europe", Moderna Museet, Stockholm (1999), Hamburger Bahnhof Museum, Berlin (2000); "Blood & Honey/Future’s in the Balkans", The ESSL Collection, Vienna (2003); 26.Bienale of contemporary art, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2004); "RASSIM number one", horse champ Gallery, Strasbourg, France (2005); "Glamour and Globalisation", Phoenix Halle, Dortmund, Germany (2006); "REALITY CROSSINGS", Kunsthalle Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany (2007); "EXBODYTYON", Studio 25, Sofia (2008); "Transitland.
