In his second exhibition, under the title conTEMPORARY TRADITION, the artist Filip Boyadzhiev focuses on the devaluation of national icons and symbols. In our present reality, the term “homeland” is overused and distorted. We throw names and images around without context. We hide behind them, proud of the heroic past, however enslaved in the present. In this exhibition, Filip Boyadzhiev comments on these phenomena to the audience of the art space “Kuker Berlin” and tries to look at this serious topic without taking himself too seriously.
About the author: Filip Boyadzhiev graduated from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, where he then taught until 2020.
