Spotlight on Central Europe: Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic
Photography is one of Central Europe's richest forms of artistic expression. From the very beginning of the 20th century, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague, Ljubljana and Warsaw were home to an intellectual avant-garde promoting a new vision of photography. Many artists from these cities revolutionized the history of photography, from André Kertész and Mohology-Nagy to František Drtikol, Josef Sudek, Brassaï and Robert Capa.

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the countries of the former Eastern Bloc have undergone a political, social and cultural revival. Photography remains the preferred language through which Central European artists express a new political and social reality, borrowing from diverse practices ranging from the visual and performing arts to documentary and subjective forms.

With work by more than 90 Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovakian and Slovenian artists, Paris Photo will offer an exceptional overview of the Central European scene, from the 1920’s avant-garde movements and the post-war years through to the most contemporary production.

The Spotlight on Central Europe is curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, art critic and independent curator.
