Along With Our Flaws

Until January 06, 2020

A flaw is only a flaw if we consider it to be one. Depending on our character, or the momentary psychological and physical influences we are under, we can experience the same thing in numerous different ways. The images presented at the exhibition Along With Our Flaws can be interpreted in two ways. Technically they are flawed photographs, while their thematic interpretation implies (self-)acceptance. The two artists, Vera A Fehér and Emese Altnőder create multilayered, polysemic images of a both ordinary and peculiar world (mis)using the various functions of the camera.

The Photojournalist Robert Capa

Until June 30, 2020

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.

As for Capa

Until January 05, 2020

Reflections on the Robert Capa Phenomenon | In the spring semester of the academic year 2018/19, students of the Media Design BA program of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest dealt with the memory of Robert Capa, the world-renowned war correspondent of Hungarian descent and the contemporary challenges of photojournalism and documentarism through the study of a radio interview with the photographer. The pieces thus produced are reflections of a young generation, which had never experienced war, on Bob Capa’s experiences, photojournalistic work and the role of media in our lives in general.

EUPHORIA? Stories of a System Change from Hungary

Vernissage: December 16, 2019, 6pm

Euphoria – this is the word that seems to express the most accurately the intense feelings the change of regime in Hungary provoked amongst those who welcomed it. The multifarious contents that this word conveys, relating to the revolutionary vision, the promising signs, and then the certainty and the potentials of the transition, greatly vary from person to person. Was it intense happiness; the ecstasy of freedom; the prospect of obtaining justice; the fulfillment of the desire to join Europe; or artificial stupefaction?
