Summary/Abstract: Chavdar Mutafoff (1889-1954) is one of the major personalities of the Bulgarian avant-garde during the 1920s. His articles on the modern art of that time still impress with their relevance concerning the artistic debates in the milieus of the European avant-garde. The text discusses the experience obtained by Mutafoff in Munich in the eve of the First World War – the years marked by the activity of Kandinsky and the Blaue Reiter – as well as Mutafoff’s (im)possible encounter and participation in the avantgarde milieu. The retrospective exhibition of Kandinsky fi rst shown in Munich is of special interest.
