The Atanas Petrov Foundation invites artists to take part in the contemporary exhibition “Parallax” at the Medical Museum on the grounds of University Hospital Georgi Stranski, Pleven, Bulgaria.

The “Parallax” project aims to create a permanent installation of works in the medical museum, which is representative of the political and social upheaval from its founding in 1965, the 50+ years of the structures existence, including its closure around 1989 and reopening in 2015 with the exhibition titled “Appendix”.

This second project “Parallax” at the museum furthers the foundation’s goals of working concretely on the (non traumatic) historical concerns of this modest socialist modernist museum and its surroundings.

It accesses themes such as (un)documentation, accessibility, cure/care as artists explore the characteristics and experience surrounding the historical and political environment of the Architect Petrov’s era through intervention in architecture, art dealing with biopolitics, the significance of identity politics in describing a multifaceted dividualism, the culture of being versus belief, institutional critique and the dispositives of art, science, medicine and architecture.

The Atanas Petrov Foundation, in existence since 2015, first made contact with the architect in 2016, who, as guest at the opening of Parallax, made the first donation of his research work to the foundation.

Worldeater Generics, Axel Stockburger, 2015
Worldeater Generics is part of an ongoing series of works that engage with lists as an approach to a wide range of contemporary phenomena. In the context of the exhibition Appendix, which takes place in the abandoned part of a University Hospital in Pleven, Bulgaria, Stockburger presents a work based on the world’s most important generic pharmaceutical products. Every single one of these brand names was designed in order to create enough difference to the “original” brand, while attempting to create a semantic link to the medical condition it is used for. Worldeater Generics questions the issue of copyrights and their huge importance for the pharmaceutical industrial complex by presenting of poetic list of names that have meaning for doctors and patients worldwide.
