The Dark Side of the Sun

28. June 2024. – 28. July
MegnyitóOpening: June 27, 2024, 6:00 pm

The Dark Side of the Sun is a summer group exhibition exploring the ambiguities of our time through the work of young artists from the Central and Eastern European region. The works on show explore the relationship between knowledge and extinction, social dystopia and imagination, reality and virtual desire; the impermanence inherent in change; the body as an alien land of the mind; the intersecting concepts of posthuman science fiction, mysticism and climate change.

Through a prominent presence of irony, the haunting and dark humour, the works often offer critical commentary on our signposted realities and crises, devoid of perspective, prospects and real alternatives. They also express our contemporary ambivalences about summer, a once carefree and carefree season that has become a time of year threatened by unpredictable and extreme weather.

Exhibiting artists: Szilvia Bolla, Lőrinc Borsos, András Cséfalvay, Megan Dominescu, Sári Ember, Andrea Éva Győri, Klaudia Januško, Selma Selman, Rita Süveges, Mónika Üveges
