Official Opening of FLUCA Season 2019 (16 May, Exhibition by Olivier Hölzl)
Curators of the programme for 2019 will be the Austrian curator Ursula Maria Probst and the Bulgarian curator, based in Vienna and Berlin – Boris Kostadinov.
FLUCA will present projects in the field of contemporary visual arts, multimedia, experimental cinema, performance, architecture, design and music. Artists and teams from Bulgaria, Austria, USA, Germany, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and others are invited to participate.
A separate part of the FLUCA programme will be the residency programme, which is being implemented in cooperation with the Styria Department of Culture. In September, Anais Horn (photographer from Graz) arrives in Plovdiv for a month to work on the spot and create a special series of photographs inspired by the European Capital of Culture.
The Austrian artist Bernhard Wolf will have his own show at the close of FLUCA 2019. Wolf, who is based in Graz and has a pronounced interest in the countries of Eastern Europe, works entirely in public spaces, using empty walls of public buildings, on which he writes texts that relate to the local cultural context. After exploring Plovdiv's cultural, social and economic conditions, the artist will present a work dedicated to the city.
