ACAX cooperates with numerous partners to realize different international art projects. Firstly, we participate in those exhibitions, conferences, public events and other projects that will enable the strengthening of professional networks in accordance with ACAX’s vision and activities. Such networking is necessary for supporting the presence of the Hungarian contemporary art community on the various forums of the international art scene. Furthermore, we feel it is equally important to provide information to those foreign institutions and experts who would like to collaborate with Hungarian artists and curators. Sometimes just a little help or information is enough to forge the appropriate partnership, through which a successful collaboration may emerge.

TRANSITLAND

Video Art from Central and Eastern Europe 1989-2009

Transitland. Video Art from Central and Eastern Europe 1989–2009 is an international collaborative project initiated on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Its main outcome is an archive of video works produced in the period 1989-2009, reflecting the transformations in post-Socialist Central and Eastern Europe. The Archive includes 100 video works selected by approximately 50 curators from the region. Alongside the numerous discursive and documentary attempts to describe, analyse and contextualise the transformations, a multitude of viewpoints and aspects, presented through the media of video art are meant to provide a unique asset of aesthetic and critical positions to the current discourse on the transition period. The Archive is accessible online and also “capsulated” in so-called video jukeboxes, which together with the reader - published by the Ludwig Museum–Museum of Contemporary Art Budapest - makes the entire video-selection available internationally. Furthermore, the project partners organise a series of screening programmes and discursive events in 2009 and 2010 in Bulgaria, Germany and Hungary.

The Transitland archive is a collaborative project initiated by InterSpace (Sofia, Bulgaria), Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art / ACAX (Budapest), and transmediale (Berlin, Germany).

Tamás Szentjóby's Kentaur

Hungarian premiere

You are cordially invited to the Hungarian premiere of

Tamás Szentjóby’s

Kentaur

Screening times: Thursday, 12 November 2009, at 8 pm and 9 pm 

Location: Toldi Cinema, large hall
(Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út 36-38, Budapest V)

Until now, only a very select few could see Tamás Szentjóby’s film, as it was banned in 1975, prior to its completion and final printing. György Durst, secretary of the Béla Balázs Studio at the time, found the confiscated work print in 1983, and immediately made a copy to rescue its value. The digital reconstruction of the seriously damaged film material occurred in 2009 on the initiative of, and coordinated by, the Ludwig Museum / ACAX. The immediate reason for the restoration was the invitation of the film to be a part of the 11th Istanbul Biennial, where its presentation received significant international attention. Kentaur can be seen by the Hungarian audience for the first time in its original and completed form.
