János Fodor, Barbara Follárd, Júlia Vécsei, Antal Lakner, Space Detournement Working Group

Indoor and Outdoor


Three walls, each assigned to an artist, from the cora of Kisterem’s exhibition. Each functions like a pinboard above a desktop, where one posts currently important information. Anything can be pasted, from photos and drawings, through texts and objects to a small display and even the walls can function as notepads for ideas and sketches. Influencing and reflecting on one another, the walls become monuments to the process wherein the present becomes the past. The three invited artists are linked by more than their age: they all work typically in new media and also make experimental films and prints.

In the public space surrounding the gallery, subversive spatial manoeuvres are performed by students of BME and MOME who participate in the Detournement of space – working group that Antal Lakner set up at the Public Architecture Department of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. The young university students’ action seeks to reinterpret that section of Képíró Street around Kisterem as a mental and emotional construct which appears for pedestrians, to transform the character and mood of space as it is experienced.
