How many people would have been killed by the bombs which have been fired but never exploded? What could be the common objective of an American, an Indian and a Russian woman? And how does it feel to see when two artists create something very new for the first time? If you are interested you can get the answers to all these questions at the unique exhibitions and events of the Capa Center!

Between 17 February and mid-March, the Capa Center in Nagymező Street offers special exhibitions and programs to the visitors! Three contemporary exhibitions can be seen within the walls of this visual institute and in addition free programs, podium discussions, guided tours in Hungarian and in English, as well as performances related to the exhibitions can be visited on Monday and Wendesday evenings by those who are interested in contemporary art.

The exhibition entitled Photosuprematists can be currently seen at the Capa Center and additionally Molnár Ágnes Éva’s exhibition will be opened on 17 February. The young photographer pays a tribute to the activities of three female militant groups (Pussy Riot, Guerilla Girls and Gulabi Gang), who fight for similar objectives mostly in the field of gender equality several thousand kilometres from each other – Russia, America, India. They use strong and recurring visual features to emphasize their togetherness. These images and attributes are shown by Molnár Ágnes Éva’s photographs. The curator of the exhibition is Bán András. The exhibition will be opened at 7.30 p.m. on 17 February by “cultural demon” Karafiáth Orsolya with a performance by Munkácsy Mihály prize-winner artist Szirtes János.

A few days later, artist Asztalos Zsolt’s bombs will “tell stories” from 22 February at the Capa Center. The exhibition entitled Fired but Unexploded represented our country at the 55th Venice Art Biennale. After the Hungarian pavilion there, the stories of the bombs remaining from wars which were dropped or fired but never exploded can be seen by the public in the visual institute in Nagymező Street. The curator of the exhibition is Uhl Gabriella művészettörténész.

Related to the exhibitions of Asztalos Zsolt, Molnár Ágnes Éva, Minyó Szert Károly, Robitz Anikó and Szombathy Bálint, the visitors may take part in unique programs, such as mandala making by Minyó Szert Károly and Grencsó István, a performance entitled Yearning by Dénes Imre or Drozdik Orshi’s performance.

The public will be continuously informed about our programs on our website. The exhibitions can be visited until 14 March, every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
