The project “Images from the blind spot” is also presented (in cooperation with the ‘Red House’ center for culture and debate and with the support of the ‘Pro Helvetia’ Swiss foundation for culture), and its participants are: Vesselina Nikolaeva, Ivo Hadjimishev, Krassimir Andonov, Marina Trayanova, and Simeon Levi. It was started at the beginning of 2003, and for one year, a team of photographers, sociologists, and specialists in culture studies, has been occupied with visual research of ‘blind spots’ and their surrounding reality. These are themes and images from the trite way of life of about eight million people populating the territory- story lines that do not appear in media and drop out of the ‘artistic’ circle, nor are a subject of ethnographic, ethnic or historic research.
