The exhibition features works by 24 young photographers from five countries, representing nine higher education institutions with the aim to expand cultural cooperation between the countries of the V4 and Central Europe. It introduces the region’s recently graduated photographers to international audiences. Hungary is represented by 10 artists.
According to the curator of the exhibition, Gábor Arion Kudász, photographer and associate professor at MOME, the exhibition is an attempt to show what “being Central and Eastern European” means to the younger generation of artists who are more exposed today to international influences than ever before.
Although the artists participating are young photographers, many of them have already achieved significant professional success. Their photos have also been published by renowned international art platforms such as LensCulture, Contemporary Lynx or Fotograf Magazine.
Antal Bánhegyesy won the Capa Grand Prix in 2019, and Weronika Perłowska won the Contemporary Lynx Prize in 2019 for her series of photographs in the New Visegrad Photography selection, and her work was also presented by the Polish magazine Vogue.
