Bodyfiction

A selection from the European Month of Photography’s 2018/19 project

Curator: Balázs Zoltán Tóth

As a subject, the body has always played a very important role in the history of photography. Alongside the multifarious narratives worked out by diverse schools of theory, from the 1950s happening, performance and body art, as well as the different kinds of action art, radically changed the function and position of photography within art, tanks to praxes that also focused on the body, and afforded it a special importance.

This exhibition of the Hungarian Museum of Photography now concentrates on the work of such young European photographers who take the absence of marks and references for granted: work that makes the dialogue between the body and photography aesthetically meaningful.

Artists: Anna HORCINOVÁ, Eva SCHLEGEL, Mira LOEW, Carina BRANDES, Eva STENRAM ,Annelie VANDENDAEL, ÉRMEZEI Lili Zoé, MÁTÉ Balázs
