The photogram as a medium of art and education
Lecture at the Impacts of the Hungarian Avant-Garde conference at the Indiana University
The focus of my lecture was the place of photogram in the avant-garde tradition. I explored and pointed out the subtle changes of the photogram as a medium in the course of the avant-garde, neo-avant-garade and post-avant-garde. My enquiries concerned three clearly distinct periods, examining the practice and theory of three Hungarian artists in relation to the photogram: László Moholy-Nagy, Dóra Maurer and myself. For all three of us, the photogram is more than just a tool to carry out an artistic programme; it stands for schemes of educational methodology as well.
