As our first exhibition event, we’ll present „The First Images”, a 1994 video-installation by Balázs Beöthy. The work processes personal
memories; it consists of the black-and-white reproductions of the first pictures the artist saw in his family home (and which formed the basis of his understanding of a „picture” later on) and the stories told about these pictures in a video-interview with the artist’s father. The unfolding family narrative is thus linked with questions concerning the nature of images and the role of the artist.
