Matthias Megyeri: Isochronic Archive Budapest

​The Isochronic Archive Budapest will showcase subjective visual snapshots from a variety of people involved or interested in the OFF Biennale and its programme.

The Isochronic Archive Budapest will showcase subjective visual snapshots from a variety of people involved or interested in the OFF Biennale and its programme. Through my Hangings around the city these snapshot-prints will become visual material to draw loose associations between the moments they capture. Their appearance in various public spaces in the city and OFF-Biennale venues will happen just shortly after they were taken and therefore create a kind of time-overlap by showing things that happen during the OFF-Biennale nearly simultaneously in other places.

The Isochronic Archive Budapest is a context specific work that I have suggested to the curatorial team of the OFF Biennale as I’m aware of my semi-related position to the cultural-political developments in Hungary as I was born and raised in Germany with hungarian roots. I didn’t want to just show my work and be part of this reaction-Biennale but rather to use my off-position to the OFF-Biennale by working with snapshots taken by other people who are directly involved with these developments.
