Thanks to an opportunity she co-curated a mixed-media exhibition about the Jewish district in Budapest with the collaboration of eleven Hungarian visual artists. Due to the great success in New York the exhibition travelled to the Jerusalem Biennale in 2017 and will be on show in Budapest in December 2018. Overall Andrea has worked in film, video, visual art, commercials and music videos since 2003 and she is always looking for new possibilities to cooperate. She is mostly based in Budapest but has lived in New York, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Tarragona and Barcelona for a while.

In 2017 she was working on a new project about temporary home and she was constantly on the road to experience the meaning of temporariness and also define the meaning of home. This project’s next level is her new documentary film about aliyah from the perspective of women.
