Жлъч, Григовор, Гена at Konushnite
Post-Culture and Konushnite present:
An invitation was also made to Vladi Aprilov and Erata Relefa/ Erata Conan, but unfortunately, they refused.
On the other hand, three people will come in the summer, with whom we will boast in the future that we lived at the same time. A depressingly small number of Bulgarian musicians can catch the time they live in and make it their own, simply and directly speaking the thoughts that we have not yet formed in words or are yet to be born in our heads. Zhlach, Grigovor, and Gena are a combination of courage, skill and harsh honesty (which includes everything beautiful and abominable, which is life). When we talk about them, we know what we are talking about because they have said it.
Tickets: 12 BGN on the spot
Doors: 7 pm
Live: 8:30 pm

Raft of the Maritsa
As part of the Adata AIR programme, artist Serge Ecker, in collaboration with Alexandra Dimitrova, are building a raft to sail down the Maritsa river. Their journey begins with a collection of unneeded materials from local residents in Plovdiv. Using these recycled materials, and through the help of local builders, they are making a raft to float down the river.
The project directly references the painting by Théodore Géricault titled, "Le Radeau de la Méduse" (1819), depicting a raft of survivors after a horrible shipwreck during the 19th century. It is a powerful work, which had a direct statement to society at the time; exposing the nightmares of humanity and bringing to surface the incompetence of the authoritative figures.
The 2.0 version, or the "Raft of the Maritsa" (2019), should be seen as the sustainable social and environmental antithesis of the rather gloomy original story. The project focuses on the relevant nightmare to our society today; the amount of garbage we accumulate, and even, how little of it gets recycled or thrown out properly. This work intends to raise awareness about recycling and how to avoid an environmental catastrophe.
