19h - “What is Hungarian? Contemporary Artists Reassess The Past ”- lecture by Linnea West (USA) Fulbright Scholar in Art History  

Reimagining the near past and constructing local identities

This survey presentation on the themes of context and identity in contemporary Hungarian art, based on a 9-month research period in Hungary, features critical, Conceptual recent artworks that investigate historical consciousness. Projects by artists such as József Szolnoki, Szabolcs KissPál, Gergely László, Andreas Fogarasi, Zsolt Keserue, and Csaba Nemes can be linked in their quasi-documentary, quasi-imaginative investigations of a specifically Hungarian past. These artworks also illustrate the roles of context and identity. While arguably these works enlarge ideas of identity beyond the traditional nationalist concept, their heavily contextual nature can be problematic in engaging not only the international viewer but also the local Hungarian audience.
Historical consciousness refers not to history itself, but how history has been told, what has gone unmentioned, and a questioning of the systems and motivating forces behind this process. And perhaps most importantly, what is the role of the past in the present? A brief consideration of recent changes in the cultural scene, cultural politics, activist art, and related protests brings the discussion into the present day.

Linnea West is currently a 2012-13 Fulbright Fellow in Art History at the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art-Budapest before returning to the U.S. to pursue graduate studies in contemporary art and theory. She has written the contemporary art blog Art Ravels ( since 2008 and has a background in publishing in New York City. She recently curated BORDERS (, the first-ever exhibition of Fulbright artists, exploring the notion of geographical and cultural boundaries.

from 20.15h - Party -  Éqouter jazz band

Yunus Baydur speaking about his band: "Band Écouter was founded in the Spring of 2004, in Budapest, by three enthusiastic fellows. What's this band about? Maybe, turning bedside blues to raw riffs and then into pickled melodies... Who knows? All we can say is that this drowsy tousled youngster, in his dizzy moments awake, is confident that humming and mumbling he will still save the world. Tonight though, it'll be a single reed and some strings."
