The project Context of Space. The Contemporary Hungarian Scene has been prepared jointly by the Dominik Art Projects Foundation and Bunkier Sztuki in Kraków.
This is an opportunity to become acquainted with the multi-strand achievements of Hungarian artists over the past few decades, as well as to trace the influence of the masters of the neo-avant-garde on the young generation of Budapest artists. Context of Space sets out to bring closer to the audience the specific climate of Hungarian art, which – following modernism and the characteristic strong influence of rationalism which accompanied it – has been relentlessly governed by down-to-earth solid thinking processes. At the same time, it has not been without sensitivity towards socio-political problems and events. The project aims to present a broad spectrum of the Hungarian art scene through the exhibitions Minimal Movements and Joy and Disaster as well as projections of films from the legendary Balázs Béla Stúdió.
