Anna Tüdős, Relative Similarity
Wed 25 Sep 2019 / 18:00
In the first decade of the twenty first century, the atmosphere of the ‘transit-state’ that surrounded the fall of the Iron Curtain was still palpable in many Eastern European countries. For this screening Hungarian curator, Anna Tüdős, has selected a series of works by women artists, examining their own subjectivity, lifestyle, and work, presenting unique perspectives on their environment. Works selected also engage in the ways which artists in the region have embraced and experimented with new media technology.
This month LUX Scotland presents a focus on artists’ moving image work from Eastern Europe. This series aims to trace the history and explore the concerns of women artists working in this context.
Anna Tüdős is a freelance curator from Budapest, Hungary. She completed the Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) MLitt course at the Glasgow School of Art in 2017 after her studies at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. Her practice often explores hidden histories or underrepresented issues through unconventional ways of mediating art. Her recent collaborations include ’BRUT’, a project tackling modernist architectural heritage and the interactive installation ’Roundabout’, challenging common ideas on playground structures. She works with C3 Foundation in Hungary, which preserves and archives an extensive archive of video works and media art produced from the beginning of the 1970’s until today.
