Public space and politics in Hungary

In Hungary, under the present political regime, if an artist or a festival intends to create in public space, they have to relate to an over-politicized public realm which is one of the most important platforms of the political propaganda of the government. On the other hand, Hungarian operators have to face different obstacles to accessing public spaces.

Fanni Nanáy will give some examples of how Hungarian public spaces have been changing during the past 9 years, in line with the political agenda of the authoritarian government. Together with the artivist Zoltán Várady, she will question the different strategies of artists and cultural professionals  to face this reality. 

Participants : 

Fanni Nanáy, Artopolis and PLACCC festival, Budapest (HU), 

Zoltán Várady, Hungarian Two Tailed Dog Party, Budapest (HU).
