REGIONAL HISTORICAL MUSEUM - SOFIA presents the temporary exhibition "Fragmented Stories: Sofia/Berlin". It encompasses the works of 17 German artists, which deal with issues concerning the fragmented parts of time in reality and virtuality. The official opening is on July 6 2017 (Friday) at 19:00.
"Fragmented Stories: Sofia/Berlin" is a project that presents the works of 17 contemporary German artists. They express themselves and their ideas through various means - painting, photography, video, installation.
The main concept is the fragmentation of time and space due to the fast-paced modern life. The connections between actual and virtual, natural and urban, history and myth, seem to grow thinner. Based on this, the transition from one reality to the other becomes more and more achievable.
The official opening of the exhibition "Fragmented Stories: Sofia/Berlin" is on July 6 2017 (Thursday) at the Regional Historical Museum - Sofia (1 Banski Square) at 19:00. On the next day - July 7 2017 (Friday) at 18:00, the Goethe-Institut will open another part of the exhibition, under the same name - installations and a discussion with German guests. The exhibition will be on view until July 30 2017.
