Transcultural Imaginings. Translating the Other, Translating the Self in Narratives about Migration and Terrorism
                Transcultural Imaginings. Translating the Other, Translating the Self in Narratives about Migration and Terrorism
by Aleksandra Glavanakova

ANNOTATION

Transcultural Imaginings. Translating the Other, Translating the Self in Narratives about Migration and Terrorism offers an analysis of the multifarious manifestations of Otherness, which, though seemingly dichotomous, actually form a complex network of oppositions and interactions. The book explores the transcultural visions of American, Bulgarian, Canadian, French, and Pakistani writers expressing the complexities of cultural transformations in these liquid times. Encountering others within the context of facts and fictions about migration and terrorism, and from the perspective of transculturalism, cultural translation, and Julia Kristeva’s psychoanalytic reading of alterity, allows for the recognition and the acceptance of the Other within. Alexandra Glavanakova holds a PhD from Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” where she has been a tenured lecturer for over 25 years. She is the author of Posthuman Transformations: Bodies and Texts in Cyberspace, which explores the redefinition of the human and literature in the digital age.

Power brings privileges but also upstart. One easily could indulge in vices thinking himself for invulnerable. But when you are on top, nothing could be hidden.

To whom Lenin wrote love letters? Who put the beginning of the love scandal at the White House? Who attended on the private parties of Silvio Berluskoni? The answers of these questions as well as of dozens of unknown until now spicy stories on this subject you will find in this book.

Setsesionut v Bulgariia
                Setsesionut v Bulgariia
by Valentin Angelov

ANNOTATION

Just a decade after its appearance on the European art stage the secession went into Bulgaria too. Prof. Valentin Angelov reveals the spirit, believing and the aesthetics of the style. The Bulgarian painter – a witness of this incredible secession bang in Central Europe – is fascinated by its refined forms - by their elegancy, artistry and gracefulness. This edition presents rich information about the secession in Bulgaria (not just as facts but also as philosophy) as organic part of the intensive art life in Bulgaria during the first decades of the 20th century. The book makes a reappraisal of the secession works of art in Bulgaria and their place among the others; it points out that the secession as a style is a manifestation of artistry, and art "play" with the art forms, a brave flight of the imagination. All of the artists whose works has been affected by it are presented – from ethnographic works through the decorative arts and woodcarvings to the graphics, paintings and architecture.

Miusiulmanskite obshtnosti na Balkanite: postkomunisticheski transformatsii
                Miusiulmanskite obshtnosti na Balkanite: postkomunisticheski transformatsii
by Ina Merdzhanova

ANNOTATION

This book – a translation from the original Oxford University Press's edition – analyses the place and role of the Islam in the processes of the national establishment of the Balkans after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, in the times of the socialism and after its fall as well. The focus is on the structural and cultural transformations of the Muslim societies after the end of the Cold War. It was a time when the Muslims renegotiated their place and reaffirmed their Islamic identities in secular juridical and normative contexts, in most of the cases – as minorities in societies with predominant Christian population. The book reviews the influence of a complex from national and international, local and global factors on the transformation of the Muslim societies in the region as well as the changing status and role of the Muslim women. It disputes the presentation of Islam and the Muslim women as unknown to Europe which overlooks the fact that its South-East part is a home of significant local Muslim population and societies which have developed certain models of existence of cultural differences.

                Formi na suprotiva
by Krasimir Iliev

ANNOTATION

This is a catalog to the exhibition held at the Sofia City Art Gallery entitled “Forms of Resistance /1944-1985/” – a project by art expert Krasimir Iliev. The exhibition focused on the way artists in Bulgaria reacted against the pro- Soviet government of Bulgaria after 1944, especially after the state tried to subdue them to its mechanisms and dogmas. Trying to impose the realism coming from the Soviet Union the then-authorities accused artists of formalism. The first 12 years of the new regime were especially hard. During that time the system tried to order artists what to draw and how to do it. Thus their art became deformed, no matter if they were accepted or rejected by the propaganda. The exhibition also showed dossiers and protocols that could help us understand this period of the history of Bulgarian art. The exhibition includes works by Alexander Zhendov who first confronted the new reality as well as the works of 40 artists who tried to express their inner resistance and suffering from the fact that they had to withdraw from the cultural life of the country and to say goodbye to the audience. “For example, torn by critics, artist Kiril Petrov retired to his native village, but in this difficult period he reached incredible creative heights,” Krasimir Iliev says. Vasil Barakov, Iliya Beshkov and even Vladimir Dimitrov aka the Master at some point stopped painting. Boris Denev was banned from working and he started living in the countryside, where he was sketching on small pieces of cardboard. Imprisoned in the Belene camp, Peter Baychev continued to struggle through his art. Hristo Yavashev and Lubomir Dalchev fled abroad. Only Genko Genkov tried to speak publicly against the regime. In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, a gradual easing of the restrictions took place, allowing Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, Galin Malakchiev and Alexander Dyakov to "legalize their rebellion." In 1989 and 1990, even works by Rayko Alexiev and Alexander Dobrinov were shown to the people. Part of the exhibition was a surreal painting by Ivan Petkov entitled „Lobotomy" that metaphorically examines the attempt of ideology to take away human rights and one’s ability for critical thinking. In a world in which even a bit of colorfulness was blamed of being impressionism, the artists whose works are included in the exhibition try to preserve their originality.

Starobulgarskoto izkustvo XI-XIII v.
                Starobulgarskoto izkustvo XI-XIII v.
by Nikola Mavrodinov

ANNOTATION

The book is a continuation to the book "Starobulgarskoto izkustvo (Izkustvoto na Purvoto bulgarsko tsarstvo)". It studies the architecture, paintings (murals and iconography), the goldsmith and the sculpture in the times when Bulgaria was under Byzantine yoke; the social-historical conditions for the development of the Bulgarian art during the Second Bulgarian Kingdom, the architecture (urban planning and military architecture; churches and monasteries); the paintings (the Turnovo School; the Boiana Church). The author’s idea was the book to cover all of the parts of the Bulgarian arts until the fall of Bulgaria under Ottoman yoke. But Prof. Mavrodinov did not manage to do that. His last words after the first bout of illness were "Zlatarski didn’t write the history of the XIV c., Mutafchiev didn’t complete XIV c., and I will not complete XIV c." The book is a valuable handbook; it contains many illustrations of models of the Old-Bulgarian arts as well as architectural plans of the churches which have been researched. Nikola Mavrodinov (1904-1958) was a Bulgarian art historian and archaeologist, one of the best experts of the Bulgarian medieval arts, architecture and culture.

He was awarded with second prize at the exhibition “Leonardo and Us” in 1979 as well as with the national award for paintings “Zakharii Zograf” for 2004.

Misteriiata Mitra ili misteriiata Sabazii
                Misteriiata Mitra ili misteriiata Sabazii
by Petur Georgiev

ANNOTATION

Who was the Roman Mithra's assassin and who was the hostage? A 2000 years old secret born by a secret society. The historians have thousands of versions and none of them is true. This book proposes one version – the final one. "The first international congress devoted to the Mithraism was held in Manchester, England in 1971. The Franz Kumon's statement about the Iranian origin of Mithra was subjected to serious criticism. And neither the congresses nor the late studies gave an answer of the question about the origin and the nature of Mithraism. The present book should do this sticking to the John R. Hinnels's advice who wrote: "I'd agree with what R. Gordon said that the Mithra's researchers should start in the future with the Roman proves but not after delineation of the Zoroastrian myths to select in this preliminary sketch the Roman iconography". 40 years after the congress things stays the same. In spite what was told and the conclusions, the researchers continued with the old sketch – to bring Persian analogies in Roman forms or vice versa. And the results are sad – between the iconography and the written has nothing to do. And it is this way because the common between the Persian Mithra and the Roman one was only the name. The method which was pointed by John R. Hinnels lies in the basis of this book – we will talk primarily about the symbolism of the iconography Mithra-Dionysus-Sabazius of Europe and Asia Minor from the Roman Ages and I believe that it, together with the information from the written sources, clearly will outline the imgae of the Roman Mithra and the Roman Mithraism in Europe. The images from the relieves are elements from a sign language which, unfortunately is dead. Whether I read it successfully – I hope so!" – the author.

                Semeinata stsena: Antropologicheska istoriia na semeinoto khranene v Bulgariia v modernata epokha
by Raina Gavrilova

ANNOTATION

The studying of the family nutrition in all of its aspects allows to be densified or to be rethought important aspects about the modernization of the Bulgarian society. The study focuses on the seeming contradiction in the popular discrimination between "villager" and "citizen" on the one hand and the particular way of forming of the new style of living called "Bricolage" – adaption, fitting, seamlessly combining of the "traditional" and the "modern", of the "urban" and the "rural" according the tastes and the possibilities. The look into the particularities of the Bulgarian modernization gives a possibility for large-scale observations and the central one among them is that the urban culture of "bourgeois" Bulgaria defines the nature of the urban culture in contemporary Bulgaria.

                Etnokulturni paraleli. Po putia na bulgarite v balkansko-kavkazkoto prostranstvo v Povolzhieto
by Ruzha Neikova

ANNOTATION

This book presents the first ethnological comparative survey on the Balkan-Caucasian space and the Volga region. It presents similar spiritual and material states in the traditional heritage of peoples which build common cultural-historical past during the Early Middle Ages (Bulgarians, Chuvash, Tatars, Balkars, Karachi, Osetini-Alans etc.). The analytical methods of the ethnology science backed up with written and archeological sources reveal unambiguous substratum from Indo-Iranian and Indo-European type religiousness preserved in fate of different societies through different personifications and local ritual events. This and numbers of other facts arouse critical analysis of the concepts of the old Bulgarian history and fate-rituality and raise the need of their review on the base on the interdisciplinary approach including the knowledge on the traditional culture. The multilayer exposure will be in help of historians, ethnographers, ethnologists, ethno-musicologists, linguists and art historians.

                Nemskata literatura i kultura v zadulzhitelnoto uchebno sudurzhanie po literatura v bulgarskoto uchilishte
by Ventsislav Vezirov

ANNOTATION

This study reveals the fascinating ability of the Bulgarians to accept the new ideas not just episodically but comparatively extensive for the Bulgarian spaces. This is due the fact that young people from Bulgaria complete their education in Western Universities and then they know better which new ideas would fit for the Bulgarian culture and educational reality. In the spread of the German pedagogical ideas we see the appearing of a moderate conservatism which is open to the experiment in a way that the teachers keen to stress that they not just follow blindly the new but they elaborate it. The influence of the German methodological ideas and education are comparatively resistant in a way that they could do the foreign as their own.

Za prevoda
                Za prevoda
by Dariia Karapetkova

ANNOTATION

"Za prevoda" (About the Translation) is not a typical book on the theory of translation. It does not discuss its philosophical aspects and it does not question whether it is possible. Its purpose is to bring light on concrete and topical areas of the translational interest. In a part-time discussion some of the most authoritative voices from the Italian academic and professional community take participation which are put in the context of the problem of the world literature today and the interaction between the languages – more precisely between the Italian and the Bulgarian ones. But the subject on the translation is also a subject on exchange in the broadest sense and it invites everyone who is interested from the registers and the aging of text, from the translation of realia and dialects, form dangers of literalism and the editor's obsessions: without recipes but with plenty of good and not so good practices which can be a guide.

                Istoricheski razvoi na starobulgarskite glagoli za dvizhenie. Formirane na vidovata opozitsiia
by Kiril Kirilov

ANNOTATION

In his new work Dr. Kiril Kirilov studies the movement verbs – one small and relatively closed group of verbs which the Slav languages inherited from their common Old-Slav protolanguage and which over the time has been complete with other verbs meaning movement which has joined to the opposition definitely-motority: not-definitely-motority. But since the rest of the Slav languages kept their old opposition in the one-indigenous verbs for movement and their derivation connections then in the Bulgarian language it disappears similarly to the maturity opposition and the derivation relations of the inheritors of the old verbs has became more complex in connection to the gramatization of the secondary imperfectivation.

                V chasa na siniata mugla (Dokumentalna piesa po pismata na Iavorov, Lora i Mina)
by Boiko Iliev

ANNOTATION

This is documentary by the letters of Iavorov, Lora and Mina. The love of Lora and Iavorov, its tragic end remind us to some kind of ancient play about love and death. Mina stayed just as a dream for the poet, as one poetic vision which he does not dare to land. In her female greatness Lora rise to the heights of a character of legends who with her own death won the love of her beloved. The letters from these two women – which by themselves are works of art – reveal them as unusual human beings created outside any measurements, challenging the world and people around them. These two names merged forever encircled by the lights of poetry and legend. Iavorov – the wretched blind man, the social outcast, the poor without means of subsistence, disgraced by rumors, the suspected in murder – didn't stop to repeat until his death: "my dear Lora". In darkness of his blindness he saw the immeasurable greatness of love stronger than life and death…

Antarktida - okoto na Kosmosa. Razkazi
                Antarktida - okoto na Kosmosa. Razkazi
by Boyan Bioltchev

ANNOTATION

Boian Biolchev is a Bulgarian philologist, writer and scriptwriter. He was the Rector of Sofia University for the period 1999-2007. Since 1965 he has published more than 200 scientific publications as well as dozens of articles in the press with social and publicist subjects. His novels have been translated in several European languages. He was awarded with the big prize "Vik" for Bulgarian novel of the year in 2006 for his novel "Varoe's Amazon" and with the big prize for literature of Sofia University in 2008. He traveled to Antarctica two times – in 2001 and 2004 and due to his support to the Bulgarian National Antarctic Program a peak there was named to him – the peak Biolchev. The present book of his is not just travel notes from his traveling there, but a summary of the most interesting impressions from his adventures in this continent. In this book Antarctica is expectedly cold and unexpectedly funny. Inventively defined as a reality novel, this book stands on the documentary basis of a real expedition to the Ice Continent but it extends its stories in a way which makes the text more similar to the novel, it makes the telling a hard-mixture of fiction and facts. Thus Antarctica is told to us fascinatingly, witty and wise – because during a series of comic stories of the overmastering of nature from people, the reader inevitably reaches to the message that whenever the human goes he carries his world made from his own shortcomings and enlightenments.

Georgi Markov: Eseta. Part I - Do moia suvremennik
                Georgi Markov: Eseta. Part I - Do moia suvremennik
by Georgi Markov

ANNOTATION

Georgi Markov (1929 – 1978) was a Bulgarian dissident writer. Markov originally worked as a novelist and playwright in his native country, then governed by a communist regime under chairman Todor Zhivkov, until his defection from Bulgaria in 1969. After relocating, he worked as a broadcaster and journalist for the BBC World Service, the US-funded Radio Free Europe, and Germany's Deutsche Welle. Markov used such forums to conduct a campaign of sarcastic criticism against the incumbent Bulgarian regime. As a result of this, it has been speculated that the Bulgarian government may have decided to silence him, and may have asked the KGB for help.[1] He was assassinated on a London street via a micro-engineered pellet containing ricin, fired into his leg via an umbrella wielded by someone associated with the Bulgarian secret police. The present book is volume 1 from a two volumes set with essays by him which were read during the transmissions of Deutsche Welle radio in the period 1971-1978. Most of them are published for the first time in this edition.

This novel is his top achievement from his complete work. The author brings the reader to one of the major events from the history of Bulgaria – the fall of Bulgaria under Ottoman rule and more precisely – the defense of the capital Turnovo. The main character is the bright historical person Patriarch Euthymius. The confrontation Euthymius-Antichrist in this work – which engaged the author's great knowledge and senses of social and artistic responsibility – reveals the worldviews searches of the ages in their completeness. And again – by these confrontations – Emilian Stanev achieves these accents, these intonations and these truths which are valid for all the times and which make the recent and the eternal importance of the novel.

Atanas Burov. Zhivot za Bulgariia
                Atanas Burov. Zhivot za Bulgariia
by Zhoro Tsvetkov

ANNOTATION

Fourth edition. This book does not complete the subject about Atanas Burov. His document legacy deserves a special attention. His legacy presents most completely Burov's personality and the spirit of a bygone era which appears is not yet well known. Fateful events and intriguing discussions for Bulgaria happened; brave and honorable men lived at these times. His social activity – as a politician and statesman, jurist, economist, publicist and spokesman, humanist and socially engaged Bulgarian – has direct relation to the Bulgarian history for a period of a half century. At this time events happened which defined the future of Bulgaria. In this case it is not enough to put the facts to light. They must be rationalized and evaluated, but without Burov's citizen's position would be left voids in the final results. To close the subject about Burov means that we know all about the time when he lived and worked. The facts in this book are presented truthfully and the author related earnestly to the sources which he used. The events' interpretation is in the range of the advanced by Burov understandings and of his position. This is one of the qualities of the book which the author hopes that will be highly evaluated by the reader.

Nevinnostta na poroka • Erotichni razkazi ot bulgarski pisateli
                Nevinnostta na poroka • Erotichni razkazi ot bulgarski pisateli
by Co.

ANNOTATION

The Bulgarian Eros has a special fate. Due the centuries long social unfreedom and cultural isolation the intimate life for long time was unavailable for public dispute, it left hidden behind the high walls of the peoples’ houses and too rarely it came across in the lens of the literature and arts. The Bulgarian writers for years exhibit shyness to the erotic image in order not to provoke the "uncorrupted" society and the moralization critique. The present collection has a selection of authors and works from the Bulgarian literature heritage that interpret the eternal topic for Eros... The stories included in this collection pique the readers' interest with that what they say but mostly with that what they don't. The collection includes works by the following authors: Anton Strashimirov, Andrei Protich, Magnus, Aura, Nikola G. Danchov, Georgi Raichev, G. P. Stamatov, Nikolai Raoinov, Elin Pelin, N. Teodorov Fol, Kletnika Madlen, Pancho Mikhailov, Nedialko Mesechkov, Aleksandur Karparov.

ANNOTATION

This book gives us a new view to sadness, despondency and depression which every one of us meets in different stages of life.

Pero i maska
                Pero i maska
by Liubomir Tenev

ANNOTATION

This is a collection with articles about the Bulgarian theater by the famous theatre critic Libomir Tenev. The appearing of this book is a fact which proves that there is an opposition against the forgetting. This is a proving that the spiritual heritages which he left us are still alive. Liubomir Tenev (1915-1993) was an extraordinary person as a stage reformer critic who was a key figure in the theatre culture of the 20th century in Bulgaria. He played the role of a teacher and a guarantor of the road of the Bulgarian theatre - a road which diverge with the normative and simplistic trends. That is why the ruling communist party in this period did not like him but it was respected by his influence of an undisputed theatre authority.

Sbornik s tupotii
                Sbornik s tupotii
by Miroslav Mikhailov

ANNOTATION

In order to avoid the claims that this book is full with stupidities, the author pointed this in the title of the book itself. These stupidities are versatile and they are not subject to qualification. We will mention only that the volume of the collection in its original form was bigger than the one of "War and Peace" but after the protestation of a part of the people involved in them a bigger part of the material had to be dropped. But still the texts which were included were enough to make the editors to want voluntarily to be hospitalized in psychiatric internment who fall everyday in uncontrolled crises of hysterical laughter. In connection with the above be warned to not read more than ten pages at day and to not use alcohol drinks or narcotic drugs until you do it!

Iavorov i teaturut
                Iavorov i teaturut
by Miroslava Kortenska

ANNOTATION

A literary study on the Iavorov's works in an attempt for separation of a theatre period in his legacy. From the author of "Cultural Mission of Misul Circle", now you can trace the connection between Iavorov and the theatre. "After my book "Cultural Mission of Misul Circle" (2008) which focuses on the contemporary view in the first literary-artistic circle of the Bulgarians cultural history, the present work deepens my studies about the period of modernization of the Bulgarian society after the Liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman slavery (after 1878). The new facts and the complete profile of the four from "Misul" – where Iavorov was a key figure – without doubt stand them out as missionaries and innovators in the same time, as cultural persons who advanced on board front in various arts and in the same time as prominent and relentless champions of modernity, unquestionable interpreters of the spirit of time. The outlined complex historical profile is important sign of the Bulgarian cultural identity and unquestionably forms the originality of the Bulgarian path to being civilized in the 20th century." – the author.

This book is about the images and the using of time in the Bulgarian literature in the period between the two World Wars. The man of the 20-s and 30-s of the 20th century is seen in his attempts to "overmaster" the time by various figurative strategies, to look for directions for witnessing of his own presence in the world in and through the fiction work but not as a "place" of clarity and security but as an aperture to the unknown. The study also includes Dictionary of the Images of Time in the Bulgarian Literature for that period.

Fenomenologiia na rezhisiorskata interpretatsiia

by Nikolai Lambrev

ANNOTATION

"This book looks like a textbook on directing. It collects my personal experience, my understandings about how to prepare, how to consider, how a play is born, and how to interpret initially the work which a dramatist gives us. I believe the knowledge which an artist might have in his work and life should somehow to be given to the others. The closeness of that which you do, the knowledge about that is kind of egoism is unfruitful. An art should start to grow in the consciousness as a part of the culture of the education. The condition of the Bulgarian theater is connected with the condition of the Bulgarian culture as a whole and especially with the development, preserving, and the knowledge about the traditions which should start from the childhood, from the school. You can't as an 18-20 years old to start to talk about theater only. These are things which should start in the school ages…" – the author. The book is published in perfect polygraph shape, illustrated with photos of plays realized by the author. The author – Nikolai Lambrev-Mikhailovski is a famous contemporary Bulgarian director who has made more than 120 theatre plays, opera and musical performances, play scripts and directing of the 12 series long TV series "Church for Wolves", he was an director 20 radio-performances aired on the Bulgarian National Radio, he has acts as an actor in films…

Ochistvane na limfata - zhivata voda na organizma
                Ochistvane na limfata - zhivata voda na organizma
by Rositsa Todorova

ANNOTATION

When we talk about cleansing the body actually we mean to purify the lymph. The word "lymph" comes from the Latin word limpha and translates as "water moisture." They call it "white blood". It is transparent, slightly yellowish liquid which washed all cells in the body. The lymphatic system affects nearly all tissues and body systems; it protects against infections and toxins. If the lymphatic system is contaminated, it induces a variety of autoimmune and other diseases. So it must be periodically cleansed with herbs and other methods to preserve human health. Before the procedure for cleansing of the lymph, are cleansed intestines, liver, kidneys and blood. The lymphatic system is a unique system in the body that displays toxins and removed from the tissue products of metabolism.

Ofitsialen pravopisen rechnik na bulgarskiia ezik. Glagoli
                Ofitsialen pravopisen rechnik na bulgarskiia ezik. Glagoli
by Co.

ANNOTATION

The second part of the "Official Spelling Dictionary of the Bulgarian Language" is devoted entirely to the verb, which is called by Acad. Aleksandur Teodorov-Balan "the elephant of the Bulgarian grammar". This separation is needed in order a large volume from the active vocabulary of the literary Bulgarian language used in the last decades to be included in the dictionary. But in the same time the separation of the verb vocabulary in a separate volume makes available to be presented the spelling features of the Bulgarian verb in its completeness. The dictionary covers significantly more verbs and verb forms in comparison with the older official spelling dictionaries. The selection of words is made on the basis of established principles and criteria for evaluation of normativity and it is the result of systematical observation of the language of the printed and electronic media, the fiction literature, the popular Internet web sites as well as of studying of various types of dictionaries. More than 20,000 entries give rich information about the different verb forms and their spelling features, actualized where it is necessary in accordance with the contemporary condition of the literary Bulgarian. The dictionary has been made by a team of linguists – specialists in literary language from the Department of Modern Bulgarian Language to the Institute for Bulgarian Language, BAS – who are authorized to study the changes in the written practice and to unify the spelling through systematical codifying. With its quality of an official handbook, this dictionary is the primary tool for those who aim to master the spelling of the Bulgarian or want to improve their literacy; for specialists who need references; for everyone who need the creation of written texts intended for communication in the public sector as well as for teachers.

Obrazut na vozhda
                Obrazut na vozhda
by Co.

ANNOTATION

This is a catalog from the first exhibition which presents on subject-topical principle the arts from the period of the socialism in Bulgaria (1945-1989). The art system of idea-content, topical and stylish-plastic principles which was imposed in the Bulgarian art after the establishment of totalitarian rule was formulated in the 30-s of the 20th century in the Soviet Union and it is known as "Socialistic Realism". The art became one of the authority's propaganda tools and it created its mythologemes, the most important of them was the image of the communist leader. Strict hierarchy of the genres existed during the period, on top of which were the figural compositions with plots from the history and the revolutionary actions of the communist party, the socialistic building, the industrialization and the labor in all of its forms. The communist rulers' portraits took the most important place and they guaranteed of their creators professional prestige and political active. The exhibition included figural compositions and portraits of communist leaders – Marks, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Dzedun, Dimitur Blagoev, Georgi Dimitrov, Vulko Chervenkov, Todor Zhivkov, Leonid Brezhnev etc. The works trace the changes in the style of the socialistic realism. Even more – they catch the political climate of the time when they were created: the superficial academic naturalism of the Stalinist cult, the tries for dogmatic "liberation" in the end of the 50-s and in the beginning of the 60-s, the work interpretations on the subject from the 70-s and the 80-s. But as a whole the formula remained quite stable and the totalitarian type canon in the theory and practice functioned in the most wide idea-topical frames. The exhibition included 70 works of paintings, sculptures and the political posters as well as quotes from the ideological critique during this period, catalogs, magazines and albums with reproductions from the 50-s to the 80-s of the 20th century.

The Sun Fairy of Cupertino and the Sun Child Fairy Tales
                The Sun Fairy of Cupertino and the Sun Child Fairy Tales
by Liubov Georgieva

ANNOTATION

The Sun Fairy of Cupertino and The Sun Child Fairy Tales are inspired by the author's visit to California. They tell children and their parents the adventures of the Sun Team. The Sun Fairy is always smiling and merry. She even works on Sundays, which doesn't change her mood nonetheless. Solving problems and driving troubles away are a piece of cake for her. The stories offer this simple recipe as a message to children - what to do when trouble comes along: always call on your friends when you need help, apply fantasy for problem-solving, never stop believing in miracles. Nations, religions and ethnicities not only unite but each one brings their unique values to help solve any issue. Fully illustrated, the tales are written in verse and are suitable for theater performances. Venelin Valkanov's captivating illustrations make this book an indispensable addition to the bookshelf of every child. His name is in the honorary listing of the "Hans Christian Andersen" award for illustration and his books for children are published in Japan, South Korea, Russia, Germany and Slovakia.

The Unity in the Universe
                The Unity in the Universe
by Vassil Manev

ANNOTATION

I was advised to start this book with where I studied and who my teachers where. I’m not going to do that. I am an ordinary person with unordinary thoughts. My autobiography consists of what I’ve done, mainly discoveries combined with theory. This is what you are holding in your hands now, and the incredible applications that follow from them. For many people where they studied and who taught them it is important, but for me it does not matter. Pierre Fermat was educated as a lawyer. In his spare time he was engaged in mathematics and left to mankind a number of mathematical discoveries. Evariste Galois did not even finish high school and was left without a degree because he could not take the Matura exam in mathematics. However, he left humanity almost all modern mathematics. Thomas Edison was almost illiterate, but this did not prevent him from becoming one of the most prolific inventors in his time. At the same time, tens of thousands of scientists work in institutes, leaving piles of books to mankind without any discoveries in them. In their scientific works there are only findings. Most of them are convinced that they do not make any discoveries because everything is already discovered. The truth is quite different. What we know is limited, but what we do not know has NO boundaries. I wrote this book because some omnipotence forced me to do this. My research showed that there are amazing events that are associated with rapid technological and spiritual development and change in the structure of human society. All this will be accompanied by natural cataclysms. Therefore, some biblical texts are misunderstood and misinterpreted. Under these conditions it is impossible to stay calm.

Literarische ubertretungen
                Literarische ubertretungen
by Ralitsa Ivanova

ANNOTATION

Als eine „Gebarde, die die Grenze betrifft“ (Michel Foucault) sensibilisiert uns jede Transgression bzw. Grenzuberschreitung fiir eben diese Grenze als ein Stocken, bei dem sich ein Nicht-Mehr und ein Noch-Nicht einstellt. Daraus ergeben sich folgende Effekte - eine Aufhebung der chronologischen und kontinuierlichen Vorstellung von Zeit sowie die Entstehung eines nicht hierarchisierten Raums. Jenseits des Diktats etablierter raumlicher und zeitlicher Ordnungen entsteht ein Freiraum zur Heraus-bildung von Hybriditat, die eine Revision der eigenen gesellschaftlichen Muster und Identitaten in Gang setzt. Dies hat zur Folge, dass jede Transgression notwendig eine Destabilisierung festgefiugter Systeme herbeiflihrt und kulturelle Muster untergrabt. Anhand von vier Ubertretungs-Poetiken - der Bodo Kichhoffs, Ulrike Draesners, Thomas Hettches und Christoph Peters’ untersucht vorliegende Studie ein breit ge-fachertes Spektrum von Transgressionen - sowohl kultursoziologischer und krimino-logischer Art (als Ubertretung von gesellschaftlichen Normen und Regeln bzw. als Begehen verschiedener Verbrechen) als auch kulturanthropologischer (als Uber-schreitung von kulturell konstruierten Grenzen) und gattungsasthetischer Art (als Uberschreitung von Gattungs- bzw. Genregrenzen sowie als Intermedialitat).
