Facciata - fa?ade editor
media project in public space by "media architecture", Weimar (Germany)

September 17 - 18, 2010, 8 PM.

The project »Facciata« picks up aspects of change, flexibility as well as of combination and quotation and creates a mapping of the new facade. The facade becomes an image, an individually and interactively designed fiction within the real space.

"mediaarchitecure.de" is an award winning, Weimar based studio operating at the intersection of art, design and technology. Some of the studio’s projects resemble classical commercial work, but venture regularly into art, design or technology research. "mediaarchitecure.de" was founded in 2006 by Jens Weber and Andreas Wolter in Weimar.

»Facciata« is part of FA?ADE VIDEOFESTIVAL PLOVDIV, October 5 -10, 2010

This project is kindly support by Goethe-Institut Bulgaria, Robert Bosch Stiftung and Municipiality Plovdiv.

The exhibition Dwelling in Travel takes place in the context of the 16th Week of Contemporary Art organised by the Art Today Association in Plovdiv. Located in the middle of the ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse Balkan region, with borders that have continuously shifted throughout history; the area now called Bulgaria has experienced a myriad of peoples and cultures crossing, staying or passing through its territory.
The exhibition Dwelling in Travel aims to explore issues relating to what has been termed ???fluid citizenship’ and ???new mobility’ in contemporary global society, most specifically in the extended European territory. The project as such doesn’t focus on the historical or political problems of migration nor on the rights of migrants, but rather on the state of being, living and working in a place, a culture, that is not necessarily one’s own – thus, dwelling-in-travel.
Dwelling in Travel brings together the work of 15 artists and collectives in the Ancient Bath (Chifte Banya) in Plovdiv. Seven specially conceived or re-elaborated projects will be presented: by Seamus Farrell (born in Ireland, living and working between Paris and Patria), Iman Issa (born in Egypt, living and working in New York), Hiwa K. (born in Iraq (Kurdistan), living in Berlin), Daniela Kostova/Miryana Todorova (both born in Bulgaria, living and working in New York), Daniel Knorr (born in Romania, living and working in Berlin), Ivan Moudov (Bulgaria) and Enzo Umbaca (Italy), the last two both with significant ???migratory experience’. All projects contribute to an exhibition of works which reflect on nomadic, cultural and oral history, with the dual aims of critical exploration and practical intervention.

Idea by Jakob Racek

Doom-mongering is booming. Hardly a day goes by without news of currency crash, bankruptcy and crisis. It seems that the crisis has become the paradigm of our time. It?s found to be everywhere: in the economy, in our social values and last but not least in art. Hard times for optimists. But artists are experts in crisis. They meet the incessantly bad prognoses with alternative models, for their capital is creativity and is thus decoupled from the fluctuations of the global economy. Art has the power to create new spaces and discourses. This is as naive as self-evident.
The power of art is its liberty, and that means its critical attitude towards prevailing opinions and moods.

Participants: Antonia Kostova, Velizar Dimchev, Vyacheslav Esenkov, David Haywood, Desislava Dimcheva, Eleonora Hadjinikolova, Emil Mirazchiev, Krasimir Dobrev, Kosta Tonev, Lora Parmakova, Maria Mitkova, Natasha Kiupova.
