Until June 18, 2023

The fifth issue of CAPAZINE, a journal regularly released by the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, and the related exhibition got the title LET’S PET! this year. The focus of the LET’S PET! zine and exhibition, as well as the six-month workshop series from which they were born, was the animal, the different senses of animals and humans, the varied forms and relationships between humans and animals, along with the photographic presentation thereof. During the workshops, participants and lecturers used the tools of diverse disciplines to study these topics ranging from animal-human friendship to the fate of farm animals to the kitteh and doggo pictures blowing up the Internet.

Balázs Somorjai: Panel World

Until June 03, 2023

“1 million 656 thousand. According to 2011 census, that was how many people had been living in panel apartments for just over a decade… every sixth Hungarians living in Hungary. I was one of those sixths.” writes Balázs Somorjai. His photo series Panelvilág (Panelworld), created from this personal motivation, is a special interweaving of portraits and interiors. The images, based on conversations and taken in a considered, then staged and lit space, visualize both the multiple sides of the personality and the private space together and their interaction. The staging and the lighting effects create an opportunity to highlight and condense the important moments.
