Zsuzsa Darab: Thirtysomething

Dávid Biró: Do You Accept Cookies?

Dávid Biró’s work Do You Accept Cookies? examines the mechanisms of facial recognition systems. The series could hardly be more topical, as the face is taking over the role of the fingerprint thanks to the latest technologies. More and more people are using phones that can be unlocked by scanning their face, and cameras in public places are increasingly using facial recognition for crime prevention and law enforcement reasons.

Zsuzsa Darab: Thirtysomething

A year has passed without me actually realizing it was over. A year has passed, and everything has happened with actually „nothing” happening. Seemingly, of course. But actually, this was a very important year. It has restructured many lives, just as it has mine.

Benedek Bognár: Cui Prodest

The photography grant created for commemorating the photographer, professional writer and photography teacher József Pécsi (1889–1956), was founded by the Ministry of Culture and Education in 1991. Its purpose is to help to start the career, creative work, and development of talented photographers working as independent artists, and to provide them with favorable conditions for the creation of high-quality artworks which are modern both in terms of form and content.

Máté Bartha – Anima Mundi

My project in the making focuses on the human necessity of perceiving the world as a purposeful structure through attaching causality and meaning to phenomena. The images in the series balance between documentary and conceptual photography, and observe contemporary urban space as the entirety of creation.

Viktória Balogh: Finding the End of the Rainbow

Establishing a home is a major challenge for the vast majority of Hungarian society. Construction raw material prices have risen dramatically in recent years, labor costs are high due to labor shortages, and good tradespeople are hard to find.

Unleash Your Herd’s Potential – An exhibition by Dániel Szalai

The starting point of the project, Unleash Your Herd’s Potential was the news about developing a face recognition program for cattle. Considering precision livestock farming, Szalai’s work takes cattle as an animal ’broken in’ by the algorithm and reflects on surveillance, exploitation and our relationship to nature.

A selection from Máté Lakos’ series, Moratorium

I bought a flat on a 30-year loan. This means I’ll be in debt longer than I have lived so far. That is something that puts a lot of pressure on me. This photo series documents this situation. I began to take a look at the challenges of sustaining yourself, a global problem that defines the daily life of my contemporaries and myself.
