Bálint Rádóczy: Dirty Work
The envelope-pushing performance/installation Dirty Work prompts reflection and self-reflection while presenting a covert criticism of consumer society, the specific medium, and the elitist art-market. According to the creative statement of Bálint Rádóczy, “Waste has an ability to mirror human states of mind, reflect upon the nature of knowledge, logic, ethics, epistemology, transience, continuity, and imperfections. What I do is not criticism. I just make this aspect of our civilization visible by showing the other side of the coin, which in turn may provide its own criticism."
35th Hungarian Press Photo Exhibition
It is the 35th time that the best Hungarian press photos of the previous year are put on display. We could hold a celebration, as they usually do on such major anniversaries. We could enumerate numbers, records, and results. We could list the names of everyone who has contributed to everything that has been created over the past years. Still, we did not plan a separate celebration, as the Hungarian Press Photo Exhibition itself has always been a kind of celebration in the past three and a half decades. A celebration of photojournalists and photography.
