Project Arts Centre Presents


From Fake Mountains to Faith

Dates: 23 Nov - 08 Jan

Show Time: 11am-7.30pm


Opening: Thurs 23 November 6-8PM, All welcome

Artist Talk: 23 November 5.30 PM


From Fake Mountains to Faith investigates political communities as complicatedly constructed entities. Departing from the current authoritarian Hungarian state policy and the creation of ‘illiberal democracy’, the work aims to analyse the anatomy of the actual political and cultural philosophy. It examines institutional and historical narratives while looking at the shifting political and public perspective on trauma and memory.

The project consists of two large format docu-fiction videos (Amorous Geography, The Rise of the Fallen Feather) and an installation presented as a fictitious museum setting (The Chasm Records). They interconnect three major elements in a broader historical and cultural framework: the symbolism of ‘ethnic landscape’ and political geography, the romantic historiography of a nations myths of origin, and the ‘turanism’ as a reemerging form of political religion.

Budapest-based artist and cultural activist Szabolcs KissPál works in the intersection of new media, visual arts and social issues. Her work has a strong focus on the ideological manipulation of history and misused national symbolism in the public and political discourse.
