HYPE | Weekly program guide

The next few days come with exhibition openings (partly because Budapest Photo Festival is still on), and the weekend will be all about contemporary galleries. In addition, we also picked out some programs related to fashion, and we didn’t forget Women’s Day, either. Let’s see the details!

Bilak Krystyna: KOMPLEMENT I Overview #3

The exhibition of Bilak Krystyna will open on Monday evening at ISBN books+gallery. Bilak Krystyna graduated from the faculty of photography of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2019. Her thesis project, the photo series titled “Komplement” examined the sign system of the perspective controlled by photography and the interpretation mechanism of the same. The human body is also displayed on the images as a reference point, while the creator manually “manipulates” the sight. The exhibition is organized in the framework of the talent management project of Studio of Young Photographers titled Overview. 

When: March 2, 2020, 19:00-22:00

Where: ISBN book+gallery

Transylvania Retouched – A Matter of Landscape and Representation

The exhibition of Studio of Young Artists’ Association opening on Tuesday evening addresses the picturesqueness of the land in Transylvania and the critical examination of its romantic portrayals. “Can the process during which landscape art eliminated its own legibility be decrypted? What ideas, traumas and desires are condensed into the representation of the land?” The Romanian and Hungarian artists featured at the group exhibition reflect on the traditionally romantic interpretations of landscapes with the help of different media (e.g.: painting, photography, documentation of natural art actions, performance art and docu-fiction).

When: March 3, 2020, 19:00-21:00

TEDxBudapestSalon – Design Your Future

The theory of  design thinking goes all the way back to the ‘60s: the idea of developing design methodologies came to light in these years first, which contributed greatly to design holding its own as an independent discipline. Since then, other fields have also noticed the 5-step method of design thinking (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test), and the business world has also incorporated it into its way of thinking. At the TEDx talk on Thursday, the invited speakers will share their thoughts and experiences about the creative application of design thinking.

When: March 5, 2020, 16:00-20:30

Where: BMC – Budapest Music Center
