A platform for ideas and creativity exchange in urban context, that originated in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2014 with series of “1-week-only” site-specific exhibitions. Over the years, Cooltsalon’s mission has been to give exposure to individual voices hidden behind the collective city life. These opportunities had been presented in a variety of events – from guided walks to meet local creative businesses to site-specific exhibitions with international artists (e.g. with participants in various editions of the Water Tower Art Fest 2006-2016).
As of 12 May 2018, we also have an annual "physical manifestation" in the form of "Cooltzine": non-commercial, self-publication, curated as an accessible platform for international (visual) dialogue between creative practitioners, sans frontiers. We launched "Cooltzine" with a simultaneous exhibition (happening at the same time, synched across time zones!) in London, Berlin, Belgrade and Sofia. Partners for the project launch were Leyden Gallery (London), Kvaka 22 (Belgrade), be’kech (Berlin) and Cush.Bar (Sofia).
