ICA-Sofia at The Book Coop

Its component parts draw on a wide circle of institutions, artists, curators, and writers who have been involved with various e-flux projects over the past several years and comprise seven discrete projects, including:

ICA–Sofia at ViennaFair 2011

In the "Temporary Sales Zone" ICA–Sofia presents itself as an association formed by the collaboration of like-minded professionals in “Unmaking Dan” (2010), a video of a collective performance made by Kalin Serapionov. ICA–Sofia also showcases GastARTbeiter (2000) by Luchezar Boyadjiev, one of its founding members. This panoramic print navigates through the complex conditions of existence for the contemporary artist in Bulgaria – accepted as an artistic security and market commodity but only beyond the borders of his home country.

History in Present Tense

The History in Present Tense project aims to engage the problematic of the emerging civil society in its complex manifestations and interactions with the outside world.
