During our visits and work in Duppini, we decided to develop the place into a center for creative work, contemplation, experimenting and research – a space with no sterile limits, a focal point where different mentalities, art concepts and ideas meet and interact.
The Duppini hamlet was deserted about 40 years ago, probably because the population lost its means of living. Now it’s still empty for the most part of the year. Duppini has remained untouched by the modern life and preserved the atmosphere of days long gone. It would attract people looking for a quiet place where one could perform his ideas using various artistic means, a place that would stir up any contemporary artist. We’ve chosen this place for its unique characteristic architecture, for its power to combine an art concept and its product into the natural environment; for the human touch of its beauty; for the spirit of authentic Bulgarian village from XIX century. Moved by its uncivilized virginity we are trying to revive it with the power of the art, while preserving its unique nature, architecture and spirit.
