Plovdiv Inspires: Contemporary Art meets Ancient Architecture


I am so very excited to share with you one of the many reasons for which I am always delighted to visit Plovdiv. Its creativity! This ancient city (by now you should know that Bulgaria has many) lives and breaths culture and the arts. A candidate for “European Capital of Culture 2019”, Plovdiv is a must-see if you are in desperate need of some inspiration in your life. In the article “|CON|Temporary Library Installation / Studio 8 ½” you can see and feel the deep love and passion with which creativity is regarded without disturbing and fully respecting the gifts of architectural treasures from cultures past. Follow the link for an example of what you might find while in town, if you know where to look.

    Thanks for the Info, Pierre !
    I have been wondering at times, what Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo would have built – if they had had modern concrete back then . . . ?
    Today we could build anything with the materials, the tools and the computers mankind has developed – but by the time you have aquired the permission to do so – the overwhelming burocracy has brainwashed all inspiration . . .
    And if you don’t follow the “rules” and just do it, they label you a “criminal” and/or drug you down after labeling you with some kind of mental disorder . . .
    The last time, a new generation created the slogan: “Make love not war” – the CIA created the drug culture with Timothy Leary – using LSD as a weapon to kill it all !
    So we are living in times with extremely poor creativity – while the technical possibilities are exploding – which is creating a lot of tension.
    And instead of creating – we remember the good old times of the past . . .
