Anastasia Khoroshilova's "Once the see was here" at Hungarian Month of Photography 2018
Hungarian Month of Photography 2018 has recently ended in Budapest. Anastasia Khoroshilova's exhibition "Once the sea was here" became part of the festival's programme.

"The scene in Bezhin Meadow, a region in the Russian countryside, immortalized by Turgenev's story and Sergei Eisenstein's legendary film. This is where Anastasia Khoroshilova returns after twelve years to visit the locals she photographed in the early 2000s, who, back then, still harboured some hope about the future."

Ksenia Yurkova's "Spinebone Soup and Stuffed Rabbits" exhibited in Austria
From 22 November to 15 December Attention Hub's artist Ksenia Yurkova is having her solo exhibition Spinebone Soup and Stuffed Rabbits at Fotoforum Gallery, Innsbruck, Austria.

"Ksenia Yurkova's 'Spinebone Soup and Stuffed Rabbits' multimedia-project covers the biopolitical approach to an issue of food, especially on the specific sides as hunger and overconsumption, studied throughout conflict periods of history as well with a contemporary ideologic understanding of lifestyle, fashion, and well-being. It is implemented in mediums of post-documentary video, photography, installation and a cookbook, deconstructing familiar advertising aesthetics and conventional ways of representations".
