The exhibition presents an extraordinary oeuvre that has been unknown to the wider public, and which can be looked upon as a continuation of the work of György Kepes and László Moholy-Nagy. It was also closely knit with the work of Pécsi Műhely, an artist community that sought to revitalize the Hungarian constructivist and avant-garde traditions. Katalin Nádor (1938–2018) photographed artworks for the Janus Pannonius Museum, Pécs. Alongside ethnographic objects and archaeological finds, she also captured the artworks of contemporaries and their predecessors. While she took the photos whose primary function was documentation, she became engrossed by the nature of light, its power to create space and form, and by studying surfaces and materials.
