Every Past Is My Past
Budapest, Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, április 18. - szeptember 29.
The exhibition displays a selection of more than three hundred pictures from the popular Fortepan digital photo-archives, which turned ten years old in 2019. The photographs are closely intertwined with Hungary's 20th-century history.
The images capture the period in many ways and layers but the focus is on the perspective of ordinary people and their experiences conveyed by private photographs, which form the backbone of the collection. Captured moments of everyday life make an amazing collage, inviting the spectators to a unique time travel which helps us to understand the history of the 20th century, as every past becomes part of our past.
