The Berliner Arts Association VBK proudly presents the bilateral arts exhibition BRAVE NEW EARTH: LOOKING FORWARD THROUGH MEMORIES, in cooperation with the Bulgarian Culture Institute Berlin.

The title sums up the concept behind the exhibition: can we build a better humanitarian and natural future by studying past events? Can history guide our imaginative and creative impulses needed to come up with new ideas to sustain the planet? The works on display may not answer these fundamental questions, but do inspire to look at history as a thought provoking process.

Snezhana Yoveva from the Cultural Department of the Foreign Office in Sofia and the curator Nia Tabakova present this bilateral national project together with the Bulgarian Institute for Arts and Culture in Berlin and the VBK, who is staging the exhibition inside its gallery.
