About the exhibition:
The third edition of OFF-Biennale Budapest, INHALE!, takes the seminal political poem “A Breath of Air!” by 20th-century Hungarian poet Attila József as its starting point. The poem was written in November 1935. Apparently, it was a time of peace and plenty: Europe—and Hungary—had overcome the crisis of the Great Depression; the order was restored. But what kind of order was it that the poet “didn’t dream of”? The research and exhibition project presents the political and social context of the poem through archival materials, while contemporary artworks offer its possible 21st-century reading.
The opening: April 23, 2021, 8:00 p.m. on Facebook
Tonight the organizers of OFF-Biennále Budapest are presenting an online opening event in Hungarian, but you will be able to follow the program of OFF in English as well with many international events in the upcoming weeks! Stay tuned!
