Art+Text Budapest is delighted to present a unique selection of photographs by Csaba Koncz from the 1960s.
Csaba Koncz's oeuvre has a special place in the history of Hungarian progressive photography. He has always been interested in film, music, poetry and Eastern philosophy besides photography. Before he left Hungary in 1967 and wandered the world as a hippie, Koncz had been active in the field of photography between 1962 and 1967 - his works are of high quality adopting a nonfigurative approach and are connected to the aesthetics of Arte Povera.
The show is part of the program titled Unconventionalists that aims to present and publish outstanding oeuvres from Hungarian progressive photography based on the book Neo-avant-garde Trends in Hungarian Art Photography, 1965-1984 by Sándor Szilágyi.
