FLUCA presents Markus Krottendorfer
13 September
from 19:00 to 20:00

The project in Plovdiv is specially created for the space of FLUCA. After his journeys to Portugal, France and Spain, Krottendorfer created a series of photographs, based on the study of the postmodern practices in architecture. He took pictures of buildings by Ricardo Bofill and Claude-Nicolas Ledoux which have rather specific columns – as if outside the architectural traditions of the time in which they were built. The artist studies the meaning of the column as an architectural / conceptual element in the different historical time periods and directly adds effects onto the photographs, as a literal postmodernist gesture that overturns and reformulates tradition.
In addition to the photographs of the columns, the FLUCA space also features a solid replica of the column by Ledoux, on which Krottendorfer adds an additional element as a spatial continuation of the interventions in the photographs.
It was no coincidence that this remarkable installation was set up exactly in Plovdiv, where the Roman antiquity has coexisted with the architecture of many other periods and has persisted to the heritage of the socialist city planning or modernity.
Markus Krottendorfer is one of the most prominent Austrian artists working in the field of contemporary photography. He works in an international context and has participated in projects of the mumok museum in Vienna, the MAK Centre in Los Angeles, Kunsthalle in Vienna, the National Gallery in Sofia, the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rjeka, Camera Austria in Graz among many others.

Season 2019 of “FLUCA: Austrian Cultural Pavilion” is part of the program of “Plovdiv European Capital of Culture 2019”.

The challenges of the digital languages in the world of contemporary art

In the contemporary world digital dominates communication systems. Since art is a form of communication, also in the field of visual arts, Digital Art is gaining increasing importance. In addition to video and photography, new digital languages of art have emerged, generating the development of artistic expressions such as Software Art, 3D Art, GIF Art, Glitch Art, etc.. On the other hand, digital art has developed greater interdisciplinarity with other areas such as science, medicine, design, etc. It is undoubtedly an unstable area that brings new aesthetic dimensions and introduces the question of the immateriality of art, the ephemeral condition of usufruct due to the digital obsolescence and the necessary constant updating of media, which deserves study and reflection.
Born Digital Art in the field of Media Art, is an unavoidable reality in the contemporary art world that changes the conventional notion of art as heritage, launches new challenges to curatorial action and requires the revision and adaptation of presentation, preservation and documentation methods.
15 Septemberfrom 20:00 to 01:00
Party with Ebbesen
Dimitar Stoyanov a.k.a ebbesen is well known on the local stage! His eclectic approach to the selection and mixing of dance (and not only) music has taken him to different dance entertainments – from dark dystopian raves to cocktail bars and art festivals. At a very early age, he was influenced by bands such as Daft Punk, Underworld and The Chemical Brothers and started collecting music passionately. His first events behind the turntable were in Veliko Tarnovo, where he was a university student. He moved to London and expanded his musical spectrum even more after diving into the nightlife of the capital city. There, he met artists such as Four Tet, Daphni, Floating Points, Theo Parrish, Moodyman and many others, who were not afraid to go through various styles within one DJ set. He started collecting vinyl records and soon started playing music (Rhythm Factory, Vortex jazz bar, cafe 1001, Red Gallery, Dalston roof park). Inspired by this multiformity and the simultaneous arousal of the local stage attracted him and he returned to his native country.
Together with two more like-minded artists (Brezo & Funkusion), he formed 8ball disco – a collective aimed at the presentation and connection of the points between the classical and contemporary dance music, crate digging and the love for the analogue sound!
