January 29 – February 28, 2010

Trafó Gallery, Budapest

The Center for Culture and Communication Foundation in Budapest, partner of
the exhibition “Subversive Practices”, which was on view at
Württembergischer Kunstverein in summer 2009, presents an excerpt from
this project in collaboration with Trafo Gallery.

The exhibition includes work by the artists and artist groups Carlos
ALTAMIRANO; Collective Actions; Taller E.P.S. Huayco; Ion GRIGORESCU;
Claus HÄNSEL; Indigo Group; Letícia PARENTE; Luis PAZOS; Dan PERJOVSCHI;
Pere PORTABELLA; Ruth Wolf- REHFELDT; Herbert RODRIGUEZ und Horacio

The exhibition devotes itself to experimental and conceptual art practices
that had established between the nineteen-sixties and eighties in Europe
and South America under the influence of military dictatorships and
communist regimes. The focus is on artistic practices that not only
radically question the conventional concept of art, the institutions, and
the relationship between art and public, but that have, at the same time,
subversively thwarted structures of censorship and opposed the existing
systems of power.
