The website openartfiles.bg is a part of the project "Open Art Files: Topics, People, Spaces and Documents in the Bulgarian Contemporary Art", which aims to promote the Bulgarian contemporary art locally and abroad. The project is also part of the official program of "Plovdiv – European Capital of Culture 2019".
The main purpose of this web platform is to solve a big problem in the local art scene – the lack of centralized database and archive. In the project are presented the people (artists, curators, gallerists, critics and so on), spaces (galleries, medias, organizations) and documents (images, catalogs, multimedia files). It is all put together by a list of specialized articles. All the content is about to be updated permanently. The idea is to be created more and more rich image of the processes, problems, artists and events in the Bulgarian contemporary art.
