The discarded family

Exhibition: Budapest Cafe, Mexico City

Date: 20 August – 27 September

The exhibition presents a family photo collection that was found in a trash can of her apartment building in Budapest. The 11 photos and 3 zines tell us what was happening in Hungary between 1950 and 1975. The story of the family is a mystery; the artist has intentionally not searched on their identity. The discarded photos do not belong to the family anymore, so finding the collection offered a new opportunity to create an alternative story by the zines.
According to the artist’s concept, at the end of the exhibition the photos remain at Budapest Cukrászda Cafe to pass the photos on to a new owner.
The three zines;
At the lake – takes 12 points to present the activities that can be done at lake Balaton
Family events – presents important family events such as a wedding, first day at school, moving or traveling in the country and abroad
Man and Woman & Woman and Man – a zine that can be started on both sides, tells the story of the family from the perspective of the woman and the man separately
