Off-Biennale Budapest, 2015

Sven Johne: Some Engels, 2013, © Sven Johne

History Restaged brings together artists whose practices address the necessity of critical thinking, of individual and collective responsibility. Through employing strategies of re-staging, where the line between documentary and fiction collapses, the selected works use filmic, literary, archival and art historical references to revisit historically significant events and unsettle our conventional notions of reality.

Participating artists: Carlos Amorales (MX), Heidrun Holzfeind (A), Sven Johne (DE), Meiro Koizumi (JP), Susanne Kriemann (DE), Zbigniew Libera (PL), Maha Maamoun (EG), Roee Rosen (IL), Clemens von Wedemeyer (DE).
Curators: Edit Molnar and Livia Paldi

The exhibition is on view between April 24 and May 31, 2015 at Galeria Centralis / Open Society Archives, Budapest and between April 16 and May 7, 2015 at Platan Gallery / Polish Institute Budapest.
