The Life in Color exhibition showcases a selection of the color images making up about one-third of the oeuvre, providing an overview of not only the most determining relationships he had, his journeys and his everyday life, but also his experimentation with the various techniques of color photography.

Ilona Nyilas: Stories from the Last Century

Until September 15, 2019

"I live and experience my images. I find it important to keep our memories alive as a visual context as well. These images encompass story-telling, honesty, associative networks, and lyricism, without the pressure to comply." (Ilona Nyilas)

The Photojournalist Robert Capa

Until December 31, 2019

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.

Walls of Power – Man-made barriers throughout Europe

Other Location: Arles | Until August 25, 2019

We tend to see European culture as open and inclusive. Nevertheless, in recent years, we have seen barriers rising all over the continent. Building walls to protect a land is nothing new. We do not need to look back as far as Hadrian’s Wall; throughout our history there have been barriers splitting up the European landscape. Through contemporary documentary photography, the exhibition investigates walls, fences, and their immediate surroundings; specifically, those erected by authorities and still standing today to prohibit people from either leaving or entering the European territory.
