"Manifestations of the Personal"
We are delighted to announce the 2014 edition of Sofia Queer Forum, under the topic “Manifestations of the Personal”, through which we will investigate concepts of sexuality and gender identity as parts of the public/private spaces. The organizers invited for this year’s forum the young curator Stefka Tsaneva, already known as the editor-in-chief of the Blister magazine, to curate the programe.
This year the forum includes a wide variety of works, raising plenty of questions, presenting various points of views and most of all, opening up taboo-free space for discussion. The forum will feature an exhibition by young Bulgarian artists at Vaska Emanuilova Gallery, video installation by the Czech artist Darina Alster at the fridge & Social Center Xaspel, as well as a lecture by Amy Bryzgel, PhD in history of arts from Aberdeen University, Scotland, the author of one of the most encompassing studies on performance arts in Eastern Europe - Performing the East.
