THIRTYTHREE – A New Horizon of Photography at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest

The exhibition THIRTYTHREE takes a look back to the last three decades of the photography department at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME). Revolving around the concept of “horizon”, the exhibition, accompanied by a catalogue featuring all 46 artists selected – aims to shine a new light on these generations of photographers that allows expectations shaped by the overwhelming tradition of Hungarian photography to open up to a fresh visual language and contemporary approaches.

CAPAZINE – LET’S PLAY

Play. Freedom. Learning. These were the main ideas behind the CAPAZINE workshop 2018 and the publication that summarizes its products.

CAPAZINE is the zine of the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, focusing on contemporary Hungarian photography, particularly on the work of six young artists selected. Its chief rule is already displayed on the cover: LET’S PLAY! Play is not only a topic discussed by the course leaders in their lectures, in the projects of the six photographers, and in the essays of the theorists, but it also means a future opportunity presented to readers by this special form of publication.

The Photojournalist Robert Capa

Robert Capa is considered the unique visual chronicler of several 20th-century wars (the Spanish Civil War, the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Second World War, the First Arab-Israeli War, and the First Indochina War) both in the world and the Hungarian history of photography. The Hungarian photographer, who covered five wars directly from the battlefield, made his mark in photography in the course of his tragically short life. His photographs taken in the frontlines and in the heartland brought about a visual world establishing a new school, and he showed the power of images constructed from a deep sense of humanism to generations to come, up till today.
