Budapest: Private Metropolises
June 30, 2017 - August 23, 2017
Artists: Barakonyi Zsombor, Kerekes Gábor, Mayer Éva, Szatmári Gergely
Curators: Tomasz Piars, István Barsony, Ákos Esse Bánki
The exhibition deals with the city’s life, its challenges, its contradictions and the social, architectural and artistic expressions that derive therefrom. The man in the built environment is in the focus of the interest of artists invited to the exhibition. Most of the Earth’s population lives and looks for happiness and works in urban space. These sites are either spontaneously created or designed by architects and then transformed into human use. The works focus on exciting contexts, showing interesting urban characters. These characters often create their own inner world, even if they are living in the world’s biggest cities … these private metropolises are able to tolerate everyday life, to give shelter in to a parallel universe.
