ICA-Sofia: Motives, Analyses, Critique

landing page of the platform | design & development Krassimir Terziev, editors: Natalie Dobreva, Diana Popova

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.

What we propose in this programme is a highly subjective and fragmented view on current practices in moving image in the Bulgarian art scene. We focused on practices that show affinity with speculative narratives - narratives that not just record what is in front of the cinematic eye, but also capture all the ghosts that are unreachable by the apparatus, thus projecting speculative views that intend not merely to describe, but to transform the world.

The Resident Fellows Program is the product of a partnership between the ICA-Sofia and CAS-Sofia activities and programs on a more theoretical level. It will be organised by the Centre for Advanced Studies Sofia in accordance with the ICA. Within a given year, CAS hosts four resident fellows from Bulgaria for a period of six months each. They come from the fields of contemporary visual arts, other artistic areas, or academia and are selected by the Experts' Unit of the Visual Seminar based on their submitted applications and the application/selection procedures appropriate in such cases. The resident fellows have a stipend and reside in Sofia for the period of their fellowships while working on a specific artistic or research project related both to the topic of the “Visual Seminar” project and to the other activities of CAS. The finalized projects are presented in public in Sofia and discussed by the Forum of Visual Culture (see Module 1).

The idea of cooperation between academics and artists is based on the familiar experience of the Centers for Advanced Study in Europe and USA. Their established practice involves the artists’ participation in the intellectual community of researchers gathered for other research projects of the Centers for Advanced Study. They engage in, and contribute to, the debates and the heuristic atmosphere of the Centers and develop their own artistic projects based on this experience.
