L'Image et son double / The Twofold Image (Publisher: Spector Books)
Catalog of the exhibition at Center Pompidou

Publication – SPECTOR Books

Photographers reproduce mechanically and chemically what is in front of them. By means of a negative and digital techniques, photographs can be reproduced to infinity. Captivated by the idea and processes of reproduction, some artists have placed this concept at the very heart of their works. The exhibition L’Image et son double / The Twofold Image (Centre Pompidou), and its accompanying book, develops dialogues between historical photographs and more contemporary works from the museum’s collections.

LÁ Art Museum, Iceland
Are you glad if you can ask something? - Networking between East and North

Exhibition – 06.04.2022 - 02.09.2022

Avant-garde artists from the Eastern Bloc wanted to connect to the Western art world in the sixties and seventies. At the same time, Icelandic art scene was opening to Fluxus and mail art due to the widespread networking by the artists and galleries such as SÚM and Gallery Suðurgata 7. This two-sided attempt to connect resulted in lively correspondence and a few exhibitions by Hungarian artists.

Tallinn Print Triennial

Exhibition – 22.01.2022 - 27.03.2022

The exhibition primarily gives thought to the radical political, cultural political and social turns that affect Central and Eastern Europe, and  it also inscribes these changes in a global perspective through the lens of universal absurdity. The project gives voice to contemporary artists based in, or originating from, the Central and Eastern European region who reflect boldly and critically on burning issues such as the rise of right-wing phobist politics, globally misplaced priorities, the collapse of democracies, the shrinking of freedom – in both life and art – and the general sense of conditioned fear and hostility prevailing today.

Weserburg Museum für Moderne Kunst
Das Wort steht im Raum – Skulpturale Poesie

Exhibition – 26.03.2022 - 14.08.2022

Among the fruitful relationships between art and literature, the dialogue between poetry and sculpture plays a special role in contemporary art. With an international selection, the group exhibition is dedicated to the multi-faceted forms of sculptural poetry since the 1960s. Objects are inscribed with texts, or the letters themselves appear as three-dimensional works of art, form spaces and are the subject of actions and performances.

Ludwig Museum Budapest – Time Machine

Exhibition – until 12.2022

Time machine is a device that only exists in theory so far, with the help of which we can fly our physical body into the past or the future. The new exhibition at the Ludwig Museum is not about the science-fiction possibility of time travel, but examines the relationship between time and art from different perspectives, and sees the works themselves as time machines that allow us to travel mentally.

Centre Pompidou – L'Image et son double

Exhibition – 15.09 - 13.12.2021

The collective exhibition entitled "L’Image et son double" brings together works generated by a meditation on one of the key properties of photography, perhaps even its most intrinsic, namely reproduction. It sparks a dialogue between historic and contemporary photographic works, shedding light on the very nature of photography and its specific features, such as its deep-rooted ties with the other arts.

MOCAK – The Artist Is Present

Exhibition – 25.06.2021 - 20.03.2022

Among the fruitful relationships between art and literature, the dialogue between poetry and sculpture plays a special role, but one that has received very little attention. The exhibition focuses on a tradition of experimental poetry and visual art since the 1960s, in which texts appear as three-dimensional (art) works.
