We don't play guitars
– debut show of the
new members of FFS

11.11 - 24. 10. 2018.
K.A.S. Galéria

Artists: Szilvia Bolla, Gergely Kiss, Imre Kiss, Richárd Kiss, Dóri Lázár, Domonkos Tamás Németh, Zsombor Pólya, Zsófia Sivák

Curated by: Dániel János Fodor, Oxána Sztrehalet

The new members of the Studio of Young Photographers don’t take photographs, and even if they do, they do it in ways you wouldn’t expect. This team of eight young artists is searching for the relevance and potentiality of photography in 2018. Inspired by the power of light, information overflow, and also capturing, examining, highlighting or hushing up things, the artists step on the stage, smash their instruments, grab the nearest object then start playing music. Moshing and crowd surfing are prohibited.


Vernissage on 24 October 2018, 7 pm

– artist talk

Can photography re-enact the past?

Photography has become a veritable seedbed for (re)staging, re-playing reenacting for the camera. There are works that use further and closer history, mix theatricality and documentality in attractive ways. What does it serve for - can we really look into the past using photography? Is photography still any witness, can it be witness of any past? Where should we stop to believe photography?

Agnieszka Rayss,

documentary photographer, based in Warsaw, Poland. Co-founder of the Sputnik Photos collective. A two-time winner of the Picture of the Year award and other important international and local awards. She published the album “American Dream” (about cultural transformation in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe) and recently “This Is Where the End of Cities Begins” – on undiscovered suburban spaces.

Judit Flóra Schuller: Memory Theatre

Judit Flóra Schuller's lecture and presentation about her current exhibition project at Labor Gallery. 

The starting point of the exhibition is the artist’s family archive and the descendents’ relationship toward this rich material. The artistic research project Memory Theatre examines how the artist - as the representative of the third generation - can deal with this topic and what kind of personal approaches she can formulate toward the archival heritage. Judit Flóra Schuller deals with the mechanisms of memory and forgetting, the notions of loss and solitude. Through the artistic analyzation and interpretation of her family heritage the artist creates space for a possible dialogue between generations. Through this process, as the artist claims, both parties are going through some kind of transformation: the archive itself is reducing and moving towards a systematic order, while the artist is stepping in the phase of oblivion as she slowly abandons the process of cultivating memory. The other keyword of the exhibition is the notion of absence: this is what explains the collecting attitude of the family that had become even more stronger and conscious due to the effects of the holocaust in the family. What motivates the artist is the unreachable process of completing the void of absence, as she continues the research about her own genealogy and trying to get a closure in the process of bereavement. The exhibition unravels fragmented micro narratives through the story of the apartment which the artist inherited from her grandfather, Imre Schuller. Through the act of repetition, appropriation and performative reflections, the artist outlines different patterns in dealing with the heritage of the past. Similarly to the act of remembering and forgetting, Memory Theatre cannot exist as an accomplished entity, it is always in transition; an open conversation between time parallels, layers of history and generations.

In Essence
– Exhibition of the members of FFS

22 December 2016 - 09 January 2017


In Essence represents a photographic view that does not consider the attachment to reality important, and it even questions it in some cases. The exhibition moves the viewer toward a photographic direction through the different abstracting practices of young photographers. The exhibited artists freely use the technical opportunities of the medium, and consciously condense or extract the visual information. Although the works build upon reality – that is a fundamental peculiarity of the medium - , this time it is not realism we get, but its simplified extract through which artists allude to complex topics, such as the phenomena of touch, the visual representation of the invisible, the image analysis of artificial intelligence or the ruling order in chaos. One can find certain real-world references, thus the artists do not cut their works off reality, they only elevate them. These consciously simplified visual worlds on one hand offer less concrete facts, thus expand the possibilities for interpretation, and at the same time focus the attention.
Exhibiting artists: András Bán, Máté Dobokay, Dániel János Fodor, Katalin Illés, Márk Martinkó, Ping-Pong collective (Anna Ádám, Judit Gellér), Ákos Rajnai, Eszter Riga, Judit Flóra Schuller, Lilla Szántói

Home Away
- fieldwork in New York

02-21 September, 2014

The Studio of Young Photographers Hungary is delighted to announce that we have won a grant from the Hungary Initiatives Foundation which gives us the possibility to realize a group fieldwork in New York in September 2014. Seven selected Studio members will work on a photography project about the young Hungarian diaspora living New York for three weeks. The project will be realized between 2nd and 21st of September in 2014.

During the fieldwork, the selected photographers will discover and document the young Hungarian diaspora’s generation in New York. Our proposed project rises from the idea to connect young Hungarians living in Hungary and the young Hungarian diaspora in the United Sates through a contemporary documentary photography (and videography) project. A group of selected photographers from our Studio will participate in a long term project where - after a workshop and preparatory course - they will visit young second generation Hungarian people and households in New York for a three- week period and document the lives and identity of the Hungarian community.

The goal is to provide a real experience of connection for the participating photographers and households as well as to distribute the visual material on offline and online platforms. We would like to make an exhibition in Hungary after our three weeks period project to familiarize the Hungarian diaspora in today’s Hungary, and as a result of the project we will publish a special photobook as a documentation and also as a present to those Hungarians in the diaspora who have been involved in the photography project. Besides, a website will be launched to showcase the works and share the experiences in a blog format and facilitate future similar projects.

We will also visit the International Center of Photography in New York - to learn about the great heritage of Robert Capa -, being the holder of a comprehensive collection of Robert Capa material like vintage prints, negatives, contact sheets, slides, manuscript letters, and tear sheets.

Generation X is the generation born after the Western Post-World War II baby boom from the 1960s to the 1980s, whereas the Millennial Generation, also known as Generation Y. It’s a curiosity that the term "Generation X" was coined by Robert Capa in the early 1950s. He used it later as a title for a photo-essay about young men and women growing up immediately after the Second World War. As Capa referred to his intention, "We named this unknown generation, The Generation X, and even in our first enthusiasm we realized that we had something far bigger than our talents and pockets could cope with." This time we would like to determine the new Generation Y with the help of the visual language, through documentary photography. The Studio of Young Photographers Hungary will gladly face this initiative together with its young talented photographers.


Participating members: Zsófia Pályi, Zsuzsa Bakonyi, Máté Bartha, Éva Szombat, Bálint Hirling, Dániel Halász, Bernadett Alpern
