    Curator/Founder of EEP Berlin, Maya Hristova has teamed up with art director Ekaterina Shuvchinskaia and editors Krasimira Butseva and Stanislav Yekaterynin to create this pearl of contemporary Eastern European photography. Visual artists, writers and photographers from all over Eastern Europe have taken their time to share their work with us through their submissions for the EEP Open Call, wishing to be included in this first issue. As editors we were faced with the enormous challenge of making a selection out of more than 300 submissions. Additionally, we approached artists from different generations whose work we've admired and followed for years. We're grateful to each one of them for sharing their work, vision and talent with us.

    Berlin Photo Week & EEP Berlin present DARING & YOUTH by Yulia Krivich | 10-13 October 2019 at KRAFTWERK | Berlin

    Berlin Photo Week & EEP Berlin present DARING & YOUTH by Yulia Krivich | October 2019

    On View: 10 - 13 October 2019 | Kraftwerk Köpenicker Str. 70, 10179 Berlin

    RSVP

    Ukrainian photographer Yulia Krivich met the hooligan gang DARING & YOUTH a few years ago. The young people we see in these photographs are hoolies, war veterans and political activists from the right-wing movement in Ukraine. At the same time, they belong to a globalized youth culture: they travel, party, fight for animal rights, and create their own image on the Internet. The clash of realities and seemingly exclusive ideals become the main focus in Krivich's work.

    "Balkan Mine" Solo Exhibition by Krasimira Butseva

    ‘‘Containing the past within my body and the visits of these spaces allowed for a connection to be made. Embedding memory and history, which never belonged to me. Diving into foreign and mother lands encapsulated.’’

    ‘‘Containing the past within my body and the visits of these spaces allowed for a connection to be made. Embedding memory and history, which never belonged to me. Diving into foreign and mother lands encapsulated.’’

    Vernissage: 11th July 2019 19:00

    On view: 11 - 14 July 2019

    RSVP

    ‘Balkan Mine’ is an extensive research of the shifting layers of history, memory and trauma related to the forced labour camps of the Bulgarian communist regime (1946-89) by photographer and researcher Krasimira Butseva (1994, BG).

    In a multimedia installation including film, photography, sculpture and layers of sound, she is recreating her personal journey through the spaces where a dictatorship was once enforced at its hardest. This ongoing project starting in 2016 is Butseva’s collection of accounts of victims and a record of her own subconscious and fragmented experience of history as an outsider. By letting the spectator become part of the intimate narratives of both the survivors and the artist, she is able to construct an image of unseen historical events and formulate a bridge between past and present, thus referencing the unspoken trauma carried within a society and its future generations.

    Artist's Bio

    Krasimira has an MA & BA degrees in Photography from the University of Portsmouth, she has exhibited her work at Seen Fifteen Gallery, London (2019), Phoenix Gallery, Brighton Photo Fringe (2018), In motion / Prototype, Sofia, Bulgaria (2017), Four Corners Gallery, London (2017), Pingyao International Photography Festival, China (2016) and Uncertain States / Mile End Art Pavilion, London (2016).

    Curated by Krasimira Butseva & Maya Hristova

     

    The artist will be present at the opening.

    The exhibition at EEP Berlin's Gallery will be accompanied by an artist talk and a workshop:

    13th July | Saturday 5-6pm | Remembering whilst forgetting, In conversation Krasimira Butseva & Maya Hristova

    14th July | Sunday, 4-6pm | Trauma & Ritual, Reading & Writing Group

    As part of the workshop Krasimira Butseva will do a series of readings of texts which have influenced her works on show at Balkan mine. From excerpts of fictional stories to history books, artists texts and archival documents, this session will blur the lines between real and imagined allowing for the artist’s narrative to come across. The reading will also be followed by a writing exercise in relation to the themes discussed.
