The biennial Hungarian Month of Photography festival follows international trends with a structure that is as experimental as its programme. The world’s leading contemporary art events lay the emphasis on collaborative praxes, especially those of curators, when they invite several art professionals to develop the theme of one festival or another. Each of the curators of Hungarian Month of Photography considers the present and future of photo-based art from their own viewpoint, while they also influence and reflect on each other’s work.

As this is an urban festival, the city and its image are centrally featured in the programme. Hungarian Month of Photography also follows the trends with regard to the venues chosen, when alongside the traditional exhibition spaces it involves and enlivens urban locales that have been less popular or have been used for other than exhibition purposes, inviting audiences to discover some of the hidden treasures of the city.

Along with the exhibitions, the Hungarian Month of Photography 2018 festival also offers professional events (discussions, guided tours, conference) to those who are interested in photography.
