ICA-Sofia: Motives, Analyses, Critique

Vector. ICA-Sofia: Motives, Analyses, Critique is an online platform presenting the history, specifics and contemporary state of that part of Bulgarian contemporary art with which the Institute of Contemporary Art - Sofia is connected. An interactive multimedia interface combines key texts, videos, publications that contributed to the development of the scene of contemporary art in Bulgaria and its relations on the global art map.

We see this digital platform as a bridge between the past and the present of the visual arts in Bulgaria; between the visibility of the scene in the world and the visibility of the art world here; between audiences and content creators; between different personal positions and the unifying context; between topics and media.

For the 25 years of existence of ICA-Sofia we have realized that there are solid accumulations of content published in and outside Bulgaria, built with the hope that the scene image gets improvement. It is time for this scattered content and reflection, which in principle (and not only as specific names) connects "here and there", some audiences with other producers and products, to "return" and start functioning in an intertextual narrative, with all its multi-layered themes, keywords, media, synchronous intuitions, chronological sequences and anachronistic connections.


The project is realised with the financial support of the National Fund Culture, Critique Programme 2020. It follows Dublin Core archival standard, the software powering it is Joomla! and the Graph at the homepage is powered by GraphXR. The conception and software development are provided by Krassimir Terziev. The editing of the archive units is by Natalie Dobreva and Diana Popova.

The Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia is dedicated to the study, understanding, promotion and practice of the visual arts of the late twentieth and early twenty first century, to the reestablishment and furthering of the dilogue between cultures and art scenes, to the search for an open art dialogue with everyone.

The history of ICA is rooted in the professional partnership between friends who after 1989 shared the vision to open up and develop the Bulgarian contemporary art scene.

The goals of ICA-Sofia are focused on the development of the contemporary art scene in Bulgaria in relation to the world at large - audience. Primary objective is the constant deepening and strehgthening of relations to the international art world - in a two directional and reciprocal manner by triggering and fascilitating a two-way flow of artists, curators and critics, projects, etc. to not only "take" your/our home out into the world, but also to bring "the world" back home.

The spectrum of ICA activities consists of international and local projects for shows, publications, conferences, seminars, short term educational activities, lecture series, etc.

The Institute of Contemporary Art – Sofia is a private, non-profit NGO, an association of curators, artists and cultural theoreticians founded in 1995 by Luchezar Boyadjiev, artist; Maria Vassileva, curator (member until 2012); Boris Danailov, curator (member until 1997); Iara Boubnova, curator; Pravdoliub Ivanov, artist; Kiril Prashkov, artist; Nedko Solakov, artist; Vesselin Tzotchev, lawyer (member until 1997).

Members of ICA-Sofia became: in 1999 Alexander Kiossev, culturologist (member until 2017), and Ivaylo Ditchev, cultural anthropologist (member until 2006); in 2002 Kalin Serapionov, artist and Mariela Gemisheva, artist; in 2006 Ivan Moudov, artist (member until 2020); in 2007 Krassimir Terziev, artist, Stefan Nikolaev, artist; in 2021 Aksinia Peycheva, artist, Maria Nalbantova, artist, Martin Penev, artist, Radostin Sedevchev, artist and Sophia Grancharova, artist.

Chair of the board of ICA-Sofia is Pravdoliub Ivanov. Kalin Serapionov is executive director.
