Artist and photographer Tytus Szabelski spent three months in Budapest in the frameworks of the residency programme of Trafó Gallery. On 15 May (Sat) he will present his research and the zine entitled Capital Square summing up his investigations of the past months.
One of the main interests of artist Tytus Szabelski (1991) is the man-made, urban space and its ideological, political and social entanglements. During his stay in Budapest, Szabelski focused on the XIII district of the city and its main communication artery, Váci út, as a scene of massive transformation. The industrial and socialist-modernist heritage once present there, now disappears, replaced by office and upper-middle class residential developments. That process, ongoing for the last few decades, brings not only a change in urban fabric, but in the fabric of society as well. During the event, the artist will present Capital Square, a printed zine which is an effect of his residency in Budapest.
Free entrance but registration is required. In case you would like to attend the event, please send us a mail to email@example.com until 14 May 2021.
The presentation will be held in English.
The residency of Tytus Szabelski in Budapest was supported by the Visegrad Fund.
