Opt for Water

Opt for Water

The Danube, like other waters in Hungary, is a distinctive communal living space. One may sail on the surface, take a plunge into the water from a boat, swim ashore and catch some rays, do sports, have fun, or kiss someone on the riverbank. Members of the waterside-loving community have also been taking pictures, which – through the photographers themselves or their relatives – have made their way into another special communal sphere, namely that of the online photography collection Fortepan. Images of this exhibition were selected from this archive.

Water Studies – A solo show of Csilla Klenyánszki

From 23th June

It is one of the strongest Dutch artistic practices that Csilla Klenyánszki continues with many of her works in the context of contemporary photography – this is the historical practice of still life dating back to the sixteenth century. [...] On Klenyánszki’s photos, therefore, we can see neither faces, nor figures, only familiar, simple objects along with deformed bodies and body parts treated as objects. In the series entitled Water Studies she included towers, bridges, fountains, bubbles, all made up of everyday objects belonging to her private space to enlighten their symbolic contents.

Sylvia Plachy: When Will It Be Tomorrow

2018. 06. 23. – 2018. 09. 02.

Sylvia Plachy, the Hungarian-born photographer, is one of the few – and the only one who is also a friend of André Kertész – who represent humanist photography in the 21st century by reinventing it in our contemporary times. Invoking a question from her childhood in its title, the exhibit When Will It Be Tomorrow displays a selection of the artist’s work spanning sixty years, from 1958 till 2018. The photographs show Plachy’s unique image-creating ability in capturing the fallibility of human existence as she takes the viewer on a journey behind the moments she records seemingly unnoticed.
