SHOW OF CONTEMPORARY HUNGARIAN ARTISTS TO OPEN IN BERLIN

 

An exhibition of the post-digital works of nine contemporary Hungarian artists will open on Friday at the Collegium Hungaricum in Berlin, in cooperation with MNB Arts and Culture. Code + Canvas will feature works from the collection of the National Bank of Hungary, focusing on post-digitalism, one of the most influential trends in contemporary art, the bank’s property wing, MNB-Ingatlan, said in a statement. The show attempts to give an insight into the world view and artistic practices of generation Y, it added. The artists have used a wide array of forms of expression, “attempting to strike a balance between the digital and analogue worlds”, NBH said. Their works combine digital and more traditional imaging techniques. “Besides an emphatic presence of digital culture … the artists are also in touch with the traditions of art and painting”, the statement said. The exhibition curated by Kinga Hamvai and Zsuzska Petró will run through to March 22.
