The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague
Ten years ago, the first issue of Edno magazine was a mini-revolution in the Bulgarian media market. Lifestyle magazines were already in vogue, but Edno was different. Over the past decade, it has served as radar detecting new trends in contemporary arts and culture. The bilingual magazine which is part of the Sofia Foundation for Culture and Art, has not only channeled outstanding Bulgarian artists and their projects, but has also expanded from a printed media to a platform that produces five festivals – Sofia Design Week, Mellow Music Festival, Sofia Dance Week, Sofia Architecture Week and Sofia Contemporary, which have quickly lined up with the most significant cultural events in the country.
In autumn 2012, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the magazine will publish the book named “The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague”. This bilingual edition (Bulgarian/English) will present 101 representative figures from the avant-garde of the contemporary Bulgarian culture (e.g. Ivo Dimchev, Andrey Pauonov, Samuil Stoyanov, Konstantin Achkov and others) – the new generation of progressive authors who work in film, theatre and performance, visual arts, design, music, fashion, literature and architecture. They are featured in “The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague” because they are the living history of the magazine and have grown up and developed into the artists they are now over the past decade.
