M?csarnok exhibition space

Artist Csaba Hernádi and museum learning specialist and artist Ágnes Szabics will invent a story, spin the yarn of a tale with young children. The starting point is one of the works featured at the Blickmaschinen / Visuals Tactics exhibition. (In Hungarian.)

18.00 - 21.00 Miklós Bölcskey’s Camera Obscura performance
Outside M?csarnok

In his performance, Miklós Bölcskey involves the audience to create the dark space for the image: a large black tarp, held by the participants. It is in this space that the fleeting images of the outside world become visible, as they are projected on smoke, a translucent material or a bottle.

20.00 - 23.00 Re-action

In Re-action, we ask contemporary artists with a strong critical sense to create actions and events that reflect critically on the Blickmaschinen / Visuals Tactics exhibition, the works on display.

Invited artists: Szilvi Reischl, SZAF (Miklós Mécs, Judit Fischer), Balázs Beöthy, Igor and Ivan Buharov, Tibor Horváth, Miklós Erhardt, Attila Menesi, Tibor Várnagy, and Móni Bálint sociologue

20.30 - 21.30 Caprice Quartet
M?csarnok exhibition space

Founded in 2006 by four young musicians, the string quartet has several successful concert series behind them. A varied repertoire that relies confidently on the virtuosity of individual members, and the harmonic cooperation of the members are responsible for a special mood.
