field trip / Street Mark Scroll - Street art tour at Budapest (based on a long-term research project made by László Ruszty and Viktor Kótun), guide: László Ruszty

After doing a long-term research project, Viktor Kotun and I have compiled a visual collection of the presence of all kinds of local street art. We wanted to go beyond the categories of today’s popular street art books and create a new structure more suitable to the categories which define Hungarian street art. - László Ruszty,

spring semester _ art and activism

This semester emphasized on the interconnection of art and activism. During the course a special emphasis will be placed on the recent Hungarian cultural developments, in the form of seminars, presentations held by invited lecturers, field trips to museums, institutions and artist studios, excursions. The course primarily is targeting the Erasmus students and will be open at the same time to the students of the Intermedia and Curatorial Studies department. While offering an insight into the Hungarian contemporary art scene, one of the course’s main intentions is to foster personal contacts and cultural interactions between local and foreign students in the hope of an emerging intercultural dialogue.
