In this group exhibition, media artists from the three countries explore new local urban legends, intending to provide a wider critical reflection on the past, to depict the current period of mobility, migration and crisis as well as to examine the future perspectives in the region.
PARABOLE unfolds in a series of exhibitions in Sofia (Goethe-Institut and the fridge), Ruse (Dom Canetti), Plovdiv (Center for Contemporary Art – Plovdiv, Ancient Bath) and Varna (contemporary space) between 16th April and 25th July 2013 and runs in addition on the virtual exhibition space ArtUP!.
