The best that German contemporary art has to offer, seen through the eyes and experiences of Bulgarian artists, presents Goethe Institut in Sofia with its new programme 1+1: Art Scene Germany. The first exhibition is Nothing Gets Lost by Vikenti Komitski and his guest Francisco Montoya Cazarez, which opened on 19 April. As part of the programme, a different Bulgarian artist, living and working in Germany, will be invited for each event. They will have the chance to present a joint or a curatorial project with another artist of their choosing, also living in Germany.
The upcoming tour in Bolshoi Theatre will be infused with the energy of the most talented Bulgarian soloists, orchestra, chorus and ballet
