multi-genre situation

September - December 2021
Concept by Vesselina Sarieva


FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE is a curated multi-genre situation in the sphere of visual arts.

This situation creates an environment step by step in six thematic time phases which carry out the realization of main exhibitions, satellite exhibition gestures, documental video series, screening programs, meetings with artists, spatial situations and interventions, open conversations, exhibition and collection tours, publications on thematic tests, accompanied by a recommended bibliography and links.

The thematic focus of this multi-genre situation is polyphonic and wide-ranging. Through the medium of curatorial analysis and selection, it deals with topics such as contemporary Bulgarian art from the 1980s to the present day, art collecting, mapping of topical art spaces in Bulgaria, contemporary institutional practices, hypotheses on the past and the future. In its separate thematic and temporal phases, FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE brings out specific microfoci points and topics.

The phases of FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE will unfold in a programmed temporal span between September and December 2021, at different partnership spaces, galleries, formal and informal locations in Bulgaria, all of which will be announced by the program stages.

The basic line of conceptualization and development of the FUTURE UNFORGETTABLE phases is available here.
