Endre Kovács (1946- 2020) is presenting a little known exhibition of his life’s work, mainly experimental in the Csikász Gallery of the House of Arts Veszprém. Between 1966 and 1974 he was an active participant in the Hungarian avant-garde movement, a collaborator and photographer at the Kassák Theatre (later Squat Theatre) founded by Péter Halász first in Budapest, later in Paris and Rotterdam. After his defection in 1974 he studied at the University of Fine Arts in Geneva, where he graduated in film and video, at a time when video was one of the most progressive media in the visual arts. Of his work, he wrote: “… Throughout my life, I have sought new possibilities within photography in the technical realisations and subject treatments that each era has made possible.”
