HYPE | Weekly program guide

Although the mornings are still chilly, the sunny weather and the super-fine programs lure us out, insomuch that we are even willing to leave the city on the weekends for contemporary jewelry and glass art shows. If you’d rather stay in the city, we recommend two talks on architecture and urbanism, but Polish poster art, a world-famous Hungarian product and the fusion of photography and music will also be in spotlight. And, of course, we haven’t forgot about Valentine’s Day, either.

The second project of CAPAZINE workshop ran under the title LET’S DANCE and focused on the points of connection between music and photography. The two different branches of art trigger two different sense organs, and therefore work with different artistic toolkits. The results of the works of photographers and musicians together are pieces of art that use both the elements of photography and those of music –this is what you can see on the exhibition of Capa Center. At the finissage on Monday, electroacoustic music composer Andrea Szigetvári and curator Judit Gellér will guide us through the exhibition, and the music band Approach will perform before them.
