In her lecture Bussard will discuss the series of contemporary photography exhibitions that she has initiated and curated at the Art Institute since 2005, On the Scene. Occurring every other year, the most recent On the Scene was installed in the new Renzo Piano Modern Wing, and was the occasion for two specially-commissioned installations by Jason Lazarus (b. 1975) and Zoe Strauss (b. 1970).
Andreas Müller-Pohle will present his recent projects and video works in a panel discussion. Together with Lajos Adamik (translator) and Gábor Pfisztner (art critic) he will also examine the international visibility of the Hungarian photography scene.

This event was organized in cooperation between ACAX | Agency for Contemporary Art Exchange, Nessim Gallery, Goethe Institute Hungary and LUMEN Photography Foundation.
