The Month of Photography Budapest is managed by the Association of Hungarian Photographers. The program has become an organic part of the Hungarian photo-life. The main purpose is to show the many facets of photography and to invite a larger audience – not only professionals – to participate. Photography is also considered in relation to the visual arts.
The Month of Photography has joined the organization European Month of Photography (EMoP) in 2012, which unites the European photo-festivals. In 2012 partly, in 2014 we are in complete collaboration to establish the events, which appears simultanously in cities to guide attention to the ambitions of the contemporary photography.
The conception of the Month of Photography 2014 has been formed by the Hungarian organizers adjusted to the suggestion of the EMoP: examining the problematical questions of the recollection of history. Therefore organize we the Hungarian events around the topic of the usage of the archives which scans the alternatives of the usage and re-interpretation of the historical documents (written, objective, musical) reflecting in the creations of the contemporary photographs. In the programme organized by the Month of Photography 2014 itself, will be presented monumental collective exhibitions – in connection with the intended themes – , smaller scaled exhibitions – fitting to the topic and also conversations, accompanying programs in purpose to help the intensification of the interpretation. Of course we comprise exhibitions with other conceptions in term of the multicoloured themes.
