KAMEN STOYANOV
Artist
KAMEN STOYANOV - the Bulgarian artist living in Vienna - often deals with the questions of identity, migration, historical definition, social and cultural communication in his works by gathering first-hand experiences of the social, artistic and cultural relations of the given country as a scholarship-holder. He uses the urban public places and the architectural environment as exhibition spaces, themes of photography and contrasts them with the current or inherited cultural relations, habits. In 2016 he was Artist-in-Residence in Istanbul by the International Studio Program of the Austrian Federal Chancellery. His movie New Istanbul Dreams investigates the construction side of the New Istanbul Airport and is showing the transformation process from a personal to a national homeland.
