To Touch at the Edge
02.12 – 19.12.2022 – group exhibition
To touch at the edge is a collaborative project, a group exhibition and a book, which begin its life a year ago on the internet. This initiative has gathered visual artists, curators, researchers and writers from six countries, working with the notion of “borders”. The authors study the concept of borders through the context of archeology, nature, resistance and colonialism, as well as the borders of our bodies, these part of our identity, generational history, culture and the collective.
This project was created through a collective process which took place in the span of half a year, with the participation of six individuals from Bulgaria, Serbia, the Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Turkey and Greece. In our meetings, Elisabeth Ajtaj, Ezgi Erol, Teodora Jeremić, Beatrice Schuett Moumdjian, Elena Marcevska and Lina Manousogiannaki shared personal stories from their practices, alongside memories of the recent past and present of Eastern and Western Europe, together with ideas of belonging and identity. The project was led by Denislav Golemanov, Martin Atanasov, Vasil Vladimirov and Krasimira Butseva.
The project has been realised with the financial support of National Culture Fund , the programme Group artistic initiatives
