Boris Kostadinov


Boris Kostadinov is a curator - lives and works in an international context between Vienna, Berlin and Sofia.

His projects are in the field of contemporary art and they explore the interaction of art with political and geopolitical realities, economics, social processes and theories: economy of art, art as a social or activist gesture and art as a political platform. The second guideline of his work is art and technology. Such projects are defined by artistic practices that moderate relationships between elite science, future forecasts and social consciousness. 

He has curated projects for: Projektraum LS43, Berlin; Scope, Berlin; Notgalerie, Vienna; viennacontemporary Fair, Vienna; Forum Stadtpark, Graz; Krinzinger Gallery, Vienna; IG Bildende Kunst Gallery, Vienna; bäckerstrasse4 Gallery, Vienna; Ernst Hilger Gallery, Vienna; Haus Wittgenstein, Vienna; Kunstverein LLLLLL, Vienna; Radiator Gallery, New York; Leo Kuelbs Collection, New York; National Gallery, Sofia; Center for Contemporary Art, Plovdiv; Sofia City Art Gallery, Sofia; Trafo, Budapest; KGLU, Slovenj Gradec; LOOP Fair, Barcelona.

Kostadinov has authored many texts in catalogues and specialized publications.
