Non Illustrated Art History School Book

  • 2015
  • 1+ AP 2015 (2018), altered schoolbook (Szabó Attila: Művészettörténet képekben - A kezdetektől napjainkig. Független Pedagógiai Intézet, Budapest, 2004), two versions

  • The work focuses on the role of photography in our art history knowledge. Removing the reproductions from my former schoolbook results in a lack of visual references, thus breaking the original purpose of the subject with a new kind of aesthetic.

    Possible works for Leopold Bloom shortlist exhibition | 2013 - 2018

The proposal for the shortlist exhibition includes separate works, but dealing with the same phenomenon: the different aspects of the photographic medium in reproducing artworks. What is the role of photography in our knowledge of art history and how it transforms a unique piece of artwork to reproducible data. With these works I strive to make visible the transparency of the medium.
