UNSTABLE MONUMENTS
Remnants from Times of Ideology
/Symposium/

November 1, 2019
SKLAD, “Ekzarh Yosif” 16, Plovdiv

Initiated by Kamen Stoyanov & Katharina Swoboda

The symposium “Unstable Monuments. Remnants from Times of Ideology” is dedicated to deconstruct and analyse todays meaning of monuments from the socialist era. The starting point is a short film by artists Kamen Stoyanov and Katharina Swoboda. It is about the (de)fictionalisation of the “Alyosha” figure in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. This monument is a vivid example of the entanglement of history and myth-making. Based on cultural theory thinking, the symposium aims to create space for a differentiated discussion about these monuments in cultural and aesthetic terms. www.alyosha.info
