Andreas Fogarasi is part of the group show Spectacular City – The artistic speculum of Jewish Central Europe at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Budapest, Hungary.
Budapest, Páva utca 39. – gallery of the synagogue
On view until july, 2023

This exhibition brings the light of the city to the balcony of the synagogue, while providing an artistic interpretation of Jewish tradition and Central-European urban identity, through the visions of renowned contemporary artists. Géza Kulcsár, the curator, summarizes the experience as “a narrative of our encounters with the traumas and splendors of history on the one hand, and the experience of the Central-European metropolis with its familiar everyday forms and its spatial estrangement on the other.”

Andreas Fogarasi, for the third iteration of the Material Library, after Times Museum and KunstHaus Graz, collected glass samples from Budapest architecture offices, to be temporarily displayed at the Páva utca Synagogue in Budapest. Just in front of the beautiful lead-glazed windows, notions of beauty and fragility and a call for collective repair guided the project.
