Dutch performing artist Jos Bregman builds a decor in which passing audiences experiences a performance. Come without expectations, leave as another person. This place is an art project of mine. It is set up as a part-time neighbor european crowd event. When I am there, I investigate the way to be a neighbor in the EU. Unique is the close interaction with the neighbors, the local school kids, and the stunning view of Kosnitza Mountain and the valley. Great hiking.

The space

It is a nice house, and it is cheap. I consider it as one of my art performances, I have put a lot of personal effort in and I am very willing to share. So: the house and I would love to have an audience: you. You must know however it is not a luxurious residency, it is basically how the priest left it, a unique museumlike experience. You can heat up the one room on the lower floor with a fire stove. This is the living room, so to say. On the second floor you have two bedrooms, but these cannot be heated. There are lots of blankets, including two electrically heated ones, where you can lie on. When you hesitate bring more yourself. There is a little outdoor house where you can make a small sauna with hot water from the fire stove. So: there is no shower. Next to is the sawchips toilet. It is a hole in a concrete floor, covered with sawchips: nice smell. After use, shove in the 'contaminated chips' and sprinkle fresh ones for a fresh cover. There is one water tap, also outside the house, under a roof. It is the best water in Bulgaria, straight from the mountains, but it is cold water. NL: Er zijn twee verdiepingen en veel overdekte buitenruimte. In de benedenverdieping (een knusse kamer) stook je de houtkachel. Je snijdt er je groente en bakt op dezelfde kachel, of je ontsteekt de gaspit. Op de houtkachel zet je een grote pan water, waarmee je je in de mandieruimte heerlijk en verkwikkend wast. Op de bovenverdieping doe je een uur voor je gaat slapen de elektrische deken aan en slaap je warm met een fris hoofd. Onder het buitenafdak tap je het heerlijkste bergbronwater. Er is een buitengebouwtje met zaagseltoilet en mandieruimte.

NL: Je hebt overal toegang toe en je mag kunst van allerlei aard achterlaten of produceren. Probeer vooral na te gaan in hoeverre je je tot de buren kunt verhouden. Stroopwafels en klompen (klein of groot) doen het doorgaans goed als geschenkjes.

Jos place is really secluded. Osenovlag is a very small village really high in the mountains. The area is great, you are in the middle of the forest. The best place to visit is in the summer. We celebrated 2017 and it was really cold. The neighbors were very friendly and helped us a lot. All together Altogether a great place for relaxation and enjoying the beauty of nature. But keep in mind the house offers basic comfort and one has to have the proper mindset and skills to appreciate it.

Jos's pop art house is inspiring and magical. We recommend making your own way there by public transport, it's is a riddle. Expect nothing. Keep in your mind the idea of neighbourhood, bring groceries and as many bulgarian words as you can remember. When there, plan ahead, say hi to the neighbours. Any failure to speak the language in town will be met with the understanding that "you are friends with the Dutch guy", high young men will help you back home if it rains while you walk, friendly neighbours will bring candles if the electricity fails. There are secrets in the house, clues to old "performances", micro histories and memories. Visit the monastery with the candle, bathe like the old priest, cook fresh food, find the neighbour that runs the local store. Places like this are the secrets you tell your children about in years to come, stay here, make art or just participate in the art of neighbourhood, experience the bulgaria that takes years to find without a mystical refuge house in the middle of the forest in a town called Osenovlag, with no recorded bus routes, just a neighbour who picks everyone up and drops them off twice a day.

I am a Dutch artist working with wood and internet. My main goal is to provide easy nature access, to establish a counterweight for easy internet access. I also climb trees for my work, I am an arborist. You can see some of it on: nature access dot nl.
My wife is a writer. We have 2 sons, Jon 16 and Jesse 13. We really like organic gardening and foods, bees and trees, combined with urban culture like stand up comedy, rooftopgardens and longboarding. We intend to rent bikes.
In the Netherlands we have a small communal farm. We work a lot on the farm.

My motto in life is: N8UREXS4All. You can find much more about me on the Zuckerberg website slash jos.bregman
