In September 2020 Sariev, Plovdiv and Office for Art, Berlin, are launching an initiative to found a Circle of Friends for Bulgarian Art.
The aim of the association will be to create a common platform for experts and art lovers, to focus on certain topics, issues and areas in art, to provide knowledge and educational mediation, to give support for art, artists, initiatives, institutions and to network internationally. Its initial focus is the Bulgarian contemporary art scene. The Circle of Friends for Bulgarian Art is organized independently by Vesselina Sarieva (Sariev, Plovdiv) and Rainald Schumacher, Nathalie Hoyos (Office for Art, Berlin) and manages itself. It is only responsible to its members.
Over the coming months,the initiative will beaccompanied by exhibitions and encounters with artists, works of art and actors in the cultural field and will lead to the legal and official founding of the Circle of Friends. All such encounters will take place in compliance with all health regulations and rules of personal conduct. But we are convinced that it is even more important to support art, artists and initiativesnow,in this fragile situation.
The first steps on the path are marked by the exhibition series Force of Attractio


The project is a co-operation with the Open Arts Foundation, and is supported by the Municipal Foundation Plovdiv 2019 und IFA Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen
