“Crossing Lines” exhibition opens at Capa Center Budapest

Wounded Landscapes

The international group exhibition “Crossing Lines. Politics of Images” opens at the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, Budapest, Hungary on October 14th.

Comprising 150 photographs and video installations by twenty international artists, the exhibition “Crossing Lines” foregrounds the war in Ukraine. What types of imagery are generated to send certain messages? What continuities and commonalities prevail in society regarding the perception of images? The presented examples prove the extent to which the medium of photography is used to generate and support political and collective statements.

The exhibition premiered in the frame of the festival of visual media FOTO WIEN 2023 this summer.
