Vanja Kubadinska and Nadezhda Dzhakova;
Green Video Platform is a mobile public platform for bringing the art and its socially engaged message to the open public. With this we aim at both: a rehabilitation of artists as social critics and the outreach to unusual, new audiences through the very pluralistic media/language of the video art. We want more Bulgarian artists to consider environmental and social topics in their work, a wider Bulgarian audience for these artist and topics, more consideration and awareness for the social and global environment.
The project is a series of monthly screenings on the sidewalk screen of the Gallery "Assen Vassilev" on the busy Solunska Street. In the evening hours on a Friday evening we invite video artists / filmmakers to present their videos in the most informal context possible - on the wide sidewalk in front of the gallery where the screening takes place. For the screening the gallery showcase becomes a large back-projection screen and the public, passers-by, neighbors and the whole community can experience the original ideas of the artist about environmental and social issues and discuss them on the spot.
So far, Green Video Platform consists of a series of film screenings by video artists from European and Asian countries including social, community and environmental awareness issues.
