paris photo 2010

From November 18-21, Paris Photo 2010 will offer a rare overview of the Central European scene with work by more than 90 Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovakian and Slovenian artists from the 1920′s avant-garde movement and the post-war years through to the most contemporary production. The project consists of four parts. The General Section evokes major historical, contemporary and avant-garde figures, whereas the Statement section curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez highlights emerging talents.

The Central Exhibition and the Project Room presents “Transition Times: video art from Central Europe”, a thematic selection of videos curated by Rita Kálmán and Tijana Stepanović, Ludwig Museum–Museum of Contemporary Art’s affiliate ACAX | Agency for Contemporary Art Exchange. A series of conferences will give the public a closer look at the featured countries’ photography scenes.

Central Europe photography is also the subject of an exceptional number of concurrent exhibitions in many institutions in Paris: “André Kertész” at the Jeu de Paume, “East – West // Icons” at Espace Polka, “FormElles” at the Hungarian Institute, “East Side Story – Central Europe Chronicles” at HSBC France, “Stepánka Stein and Salim Issa, Little Hanoi” at the Czech Centre.
