Golden Boundaries

Youth Culture in contemporary photography
Budapest, Robert Capa Kortárs Fotográfiai Központ, 04 December 2017 - 18 March 2018
Cultural history has always had a special focus on the transitional period called youth. Its length, assessment, and precursor have all undergone quite a varied range of interpretations, touching on all extremities: it leads from an innocent, perfect childhood to a compromising, corrupted adulthood; or in this period the ignorant, simple child becomes an adult blessed with cognitive and psychological powers and abilities. Is it a preparation for decay, or does it point towards a progressive state of mind?


This exhibition explores the different manifestations of self-expression, the search for personal autonomy and cultural diversity, the relative separation and the temporary, ad hoc togetherness of adolescence and young adulthood, as well as the so-called maps of meaning, through which the individual becomes a social being. It examines whether there are different forms of empowering and self-awareness, or if there is a gender-focused account of this new individualism. The images on display also seek to answer in what ways the anxiety, the aesthetics of “nothing doing,” and the search for a meaning are coded.
