For anyone interested in finding out about Bulgarian cultural policy and 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 has always been pushed down the list of priorities. Stabilizing the economy generally takes precedence over cultural reforms in such cases. In Bulgaria, too, this dilemma led to considerable losses in the culture sector.
Alexandar Alexandrov develops and carries out successful large- and small-scale cultural projects as well as theater and musical productions.
