Spotlight on Central Europe:
Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic

From November 18-21, Paris Photo 2010 will offer a rare overview of the Central European scene with work by more than 90 Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Slovakian and Slovenian artists from the 1920's avant-garde movement and the post-war years through to the most contemporary production.

The project consists of four parts. The General Section evokes major historical, contemporary and avant-garde figures, whereas the Statement section curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez highlights emerging talents.
The Central Exhibition and the Project Room presents 'Transition Times: video art from Central Europe', a thematic selection of videos curated by Rita Kálmán and Tijana Stepanović, Ludwig Museum–Museum of Contemporary Art's affiliate ACAX | Agency for Contemporary Art Exchange. A series of conferences will give the public a closer look at the featured countries' photography scenes.

Central Europe photography is also the subject of an exceptional number of concurrent exhibitions in many institutions in Paris: 'André Kertész' at the Jeu de Paume, 'East – West // Icons' at Espace Polka, 'FormElles' at the Hungarian Institute, 'East Side Story - Central Europe Chronicles' at HSBC France, 'Stepánka Stein and Salim Issa, Little Hanoi' at the Czech Centre.

Spotlight on Central Europe benefits from the support of the Hungarian, Polish and Slovak Institutes as well as the Czech Centre and the Slovenian Embassy in Paris.
