Towards a trans(l)national publishing culture
Through multilingual publishing, transdisciplinary cultural production, alternative distribution, exchange of knowledge, digital content, open source digital technologies and new game formats, Peripheral Visions creates international space for creation and experimentation in publishing. The core of the project is international exchange among small/er cultural and linguistic contexts in European semi-peripheries, whereby they support each other through co-production, co-creation, transfer of know-how and sharing of resources. It stimulates creativity and circulation of artists and works, facilitates the trans-national distribution of content and exchange of practices and builds capacities by taking advantage of new technologies. The project extends earlier collaborations and connects 8 organizations from 6 EU and non-EU countries to respond to the fragmentation of the cultural field and digital congestion caused by the current pandemic context. The partners are particularly suitable for this as they produce cutting edge cultural content, practices and knowledge, including in-depth research of new digital technologies, and reach large and diverse audiences.
The project is co-ordinated by Kulturtreger (Zagreb)
kuda.org (Novi Sad)
Multimedijalni institut / mama (Zagreb)

A Discussion on the Bulgarian Literary and Publishing Landscape
Lina Dokuzović, Todor Hristov, Tsvetelina Hristova, Stanimir Panayotov
This discussion looks at Bulgarian literature, publishing, its challenges, how it exists as a peripheral space and how people resist those challenges through new forms of inventive publishing. Departing from an anecdote about a pivotal shift in the Bulgarian literary context that took place in 2016, the authors reflect on the historical context to elaborate how this came to be and highlight the significance of numerous contemporary experimental, resistant, and non-traditional publishing practices.
