apexart :: Resident Talk :: Boyan Manchev


Our Capital is Joy

Wednesday, April 18, 6:30 pm

Current apexart resident Boyan Manchev
(Philosopher, Paris, Sofia) in dialogue with
Radhika Subramaniam.

Boyan Manchev will discuss "open concepts" such as disorganisation, resistance, joy and community, while reflecting on the question: can contemporary art still be radical if it can be at all.
Boyan Manchev is Director of Program at the International College of Philosophy in Paris and Associate Professor of Theory of Literature and Philosophy, New Bulgarian University, Sofia. Guest Lecturer at the Sofia University and at the Academy for Theater and Film in Sofia, he also organized and collaborated to projects of ZKM (Karlsruhe), Tanzquartier (Vienna), ICA (Sofia), Kunsthaus (Dresden) and the Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart). In 2006 he was guest of the EHESS in Paris and Thinker in residence of the project IDEE (Initiatives in Dance through European Exchange). He is member of the Editorial boards of the magazines Rue Descartes (Paris) and Altera (Sofia).

Radhika Subramaniam is the Director of Cultural Programs at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council where she oversees a program of art, ideas and performance. Her most recent project is the two-year initiative, "Cities, Art and Recovery." Formerly the founding editor of the interdisciplinary journal, "Connect:art.politics.theory.practice," she is also an independent scholar and writer with a particular interest in urban modernity in South Asia.
