site specific is a non-commercial exhibition project that takes place in the public space or relates to other functionary places of Budapest.

The concepts for this project will be realised with the direct experience of the town, of its situations and inhabitants. The participating artists are each interested in connecting art with every-day-life. With completely different means and under completely different art positions, one experimental musician and five artists make transformations of parts of the every-day-life. The aims of their transactions, too, are different.

Involving real places, real time and what really happens, they move processes in the every-day-life of the people. The interventions shall give something to start one thinking / push the mind, and break up well worn patterns of action and perception.

In this case, art means intervention. For some of the works goes: no art without the acteur (= the viewer) (Maki, Takano, hans w. koch, Veronika Witte, Barbara Hindahl), others make visible hidden structures with interventions (An Seebach) or hint to the private area of (not-) feeling and -thinking (Werner Degreif) – both are formative for the character of the public life and at the same time preconditions for the functioning public life that are often denied.
