Boyan Manchev is philosopher, Professor at the New Bulgarian University, Guest Professor at the HZT – UdK (Berlin) and at the Sofia University. He is also Director of Program and former Vice-President of the International College of Philosophy in Paris. His actual research, which advances the perspective of a radical mobilism and materialism, is focused on the fields of ontology, philosophy of art and political philosophy. The ontological concept of metamorphosis, the practical concept of disorganisation and the aesthetic concept of alteration are central for his transformationist approach.
He has lectured widely at European, North-American and Japanese universities and cultural institutions. He has organised and/or collaborated to number of projects, congresses and public forums dealing with philosophy, art and politics at the CIPh (Paris), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Tanzquartier (Vienna), Apexart (New York), CND (Paris), BAK (Utrecht), UTCP (Tokyo), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), among others. He curated the exhibition Out of Time at Sofia City Gallery (March – April 2011).
Manchev is the author of six books and more than hundred book chapters, catalogues and other publications in various languages. In the last years appeared Logic of the Political (Sofia: Critique&Humanism, 2012), Miracolo (Milano: Lanfranchi, 2011), L’altération du monde: Pour une esthétique radicale (Paris: Lignes, 2009); La Métamorphose et l'Instant – Désorganisation de la vie (Paris: La Phocide, 2009); Rue Descartes 64: La métamorphose, ed. by B. Manchev (Paris: PUF, 2009) ; Rue Descartes 67: Quel sujet du politique?, ed. by G. Basterra, R. Ivekovic and B. Manchev (Paris: PUF, 2010). His book The Body-Metamorphosis (Sofia: Altera, 2007) deals extensively with contemporary art, performance and dance.
He has participated as theorist, dramaturge or performer in theater and contemporary dance projects, including Tim Etchells and Adrian Heathfield’s The Frequently Asked, Boris Charmatz's expo zero and Poster session “Mouvement” for the Festival d’Avignon, Ani Vaseva’s Frankenstein, A Dying Play and S and Deufert&Plischke’s Emergency Room.
