The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague

In autumn 2012, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, a bilingual Bulgarian magazine about art and culture “Edno” published a book named «The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague». This bilingual edition (Bulgarian/English) presents 101 Bulgarian artists of the 21st century – the new generation of progressive auteurs who work in film, theatre and performance, visual arts, design, music, fashion, literature and architecture.

This publication supports young Bulgarian artists, who work interdisciplinary and whose creative charge has a trans-national potential, by offering a platform for their work. It is at the same time an opportunity for a wide range of people, both from Bulgaria and abroad, to become informed of the positive trends in Bulgarian culture presenting different artists’ ideas and viewpoints. The publication offers a new vision of current cultural and art tendencies in Bulgaria and shows how the quality of the Bulgarian independent artists’ work is comparable with their peers’ work abroad.

This special edition is hardcover with approx. 400 pages. Each artist is presented on 4 pages, including text written by independent experts in the respective area and visual material. The book will be distributed in Bulgaria and around Europe.
