Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center
200 x 240 mm
CAPAZINE is the zine of the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center, focusing on contemporary Hungarian photography, particularly on the work of six young artists selected. Its chief rule is already displayed on the cover: LET’S PLAY! Play is not only a topic discussed by the course leaders in their lectures, in the projects of the six photographers, and in the essays of the theorists, but it also means a future opportunity presented to readers by this special form of publication.
The photo series displayed in the exhibition space and on the pages of CAPAZINE were developed in the framework of a workshop spanning more than six months. The publication is going to be presented by the workshop’s invited lecturers (artist Gábor Gerhes and cultural anthropologist Judit Csatlós) and the project leaders (curator Judit Gellér and curator Emese Mucsi) on the exhibition opening.
