Revolution and Transition

Cultural Policy in Bulgaria, 1989-2012

By Alexandar Alexandrov

For anyone interested in finding out about Bulgarian cultural policy, but is unfamiliar with the processes in the country, the entire period from 1995 to 2012 remains utterly inaccessible. The relationship between democracy and culture is a central topic of this book. History shows that in times of crisis, culture is pushed down the list of priorities. In such cases, stabilizing the economy takes precedence over cultural reforms. In Bulgaria, this dilemma led to considerable losses in the cultural sector. The author, Alexander Alexandrov, is very familiar with this sector. He develops and carries out successful large- and small-scale cultural projects, as well as theater and musical productions.
