50 Years of BG Design

  • exhibition industrial design

The exhibition 50 Years of BG Design, curated by the Union of Bulgarian Artists, revises achievements of local artists in retrospective. As of 1963, by government decree №65 “Solving the problems of industrial aesthetic and artistic design, constructing and designing industrial products”, the development of design in Bulgaria is officially a matter of state politics. This starting point allows us to see the face of Bulgarian design in the context of international practices аnd evaluate the role of recognizing Bulgarian production's identity which builds on the present and the future. By looking back at tradition, we can also reveal the importance of strong cultural models and the way history turns into succession.
