Introduction to the opening movie by Krisztina Tajta (filmcritic and manager at the Hungarian National Audiovisuelle Archiv (NAVA))

Photography – Pál Zolnay, 1972 HU, 80 min, gST (35mm)
Pál Zolnay didn’t use a traditional screenplay, during the shooting of the movie. Most of the scenes were improvised on-site. Two actors wandered from house to house in the countryside in the roles of the photographer (Márk Zala) and the retoucher business man (István Iglódi) offering their photographic services to the people. The movie, which has been called „the Hungarian Blow Up” many times, won the special prize of the jury of the Moscow International Film Festival.

Common Sense / Gesunder Menschenverstand

What enables layman, not only to perceive art as such, but also to speak about it? The boundaries of our perception are close to our possibilities of expressing ourselves through language. Finally all that is dependent on the agreement on the use and sense of art and on the individual and common preferences and prejudices influencing the process of art reception.

Path to follow / Der Weg, dem man folgt

We understand the world through narratives. We start somewhere to speak about our experiences and sometime we stop. In doing so, we arrange our world according to a sense of dramaturgy. The differences between our experiences and the way we transform them into narratives match the patterns of our thinking.

Me? / Ich?

The title could also be emphasized with an exclamation mark, because the programme asks for self reflection. However, the question of the (artistic) Me mostly generates a thoughtful search, no matter how humourous or experimental it might be. The question of the self enables the spectator not merely to be a voyeur.
