Individual Project

Art Under A Dangerous Star

Tranzit, Budapest (HU)

Jonas Staal participates in this group exhibition curated by Judit Angel.

“The title is a quotation by Hungarian art critic and art historian Ernst Kállai from a short text he wrote in 1942 about how artists reacted during the Second World War to the existential crisis generated by the rise of fascism. More broadly, the project endeavors to investigate the place, tasks, and responsibilities of contemporary art in an era overlapping crises, as well as in the face of the authoritarian state power delimiting self-determined culture and critical thinking.”
