Transformation Always Takes Time And Energy, 1998, Installation, dimensions variable, Lothringerstrasse, Munich, Germany; Collection Kontakt, ERSTE Bank Group
Every episode presents a work that is important for the formation of the latest art history. The total duration of the seven videos is 31 min. The videos will be shown during the working hours of the gallery with no interruption.
The films show the artistic ways and ideas of individual works, they bring to the surface the questions that guided the artists in their creation and offer possible ways of interpretation and analysis.
“Bureau Artrecord” tries to put every piece of work in the context of the world culture and explain it in an accessible way.
“Transformation Always Takes Time and Energy” is the first season of this long-term project. The title of the series of seven episodes quotes the name of the work of Pravdoliub Ivanov and suggests the logic of the selection of the works. It features works by Sasho Stoitzov, Nedko Solakov, Lachezar Boyadzhiev, Nadezhda Oleg Lyahova, Pravdoliub Ivanov, Stefan Nikolaev and Krassimir Terziev.
The idea and realization of the project is by the video platform Bureau Artrecord (Desislava Pavlova, Rayna Teneva) and Daniela Radeva.
