Time Out Budapest, issue 26, April 2011: Art section

Feature: Shock of the New
‘Budapest’s Ludwig Museum takes the task of nurturing and reframing the nation’s most significant collection of contemporary art very seriously, with regular thematic refreshment of the permanent display and a strategic attitude towards the sensitive business of contemporary collecting. The exhibition Kind of Change is an instructive showcase of works acquired in the last two years.’

Review: Csaba Nemes and Katarina Šević, Emotional Space, Knoll Galéria
‘Nationalism is approached in the work of these two highly-regarded artists not just as the manifestation of collective or individual experience, but as a phenomenon that operates through the construction of ‘emotional space’ within society.’

Review: Outpost Critical Space, Trafó Galéria
‘Outpost Critical Space sets out to explore the ‘post-apocalyptic mood’ that has settled on the region in wake of recent economic and political setbacks, through dramatic sculptural installations that can also be read as ironic comments on East European identity.’

Preview: Miklós Erdély, Vintage Galéria / Kisterem
‘A double bill of Miklós Erdély exhibitions at two of Budapest’s smallest but most influential commercial galleries provides a rare opportunity to encounter the work of one of Hungary’s most admired but least visible artists.’

In the Studio: Rudolf Pacsika
‘Children and people always find their own way between the buildings, taking short cuts across the grass. To tread on the grass and make your own path is very anti-social, but to do so is also a way to resist power, the power that made the buildings in the first place.’

Art Editors: Maja and Reuben Fowkes (translocal.org)
