14:00 – 22:00 Uhr Installation – 7 Min. Loop, Ecksalon West
From 1904 until 1936, a Jewish studio photographer named Nándor Homonnai captured and eternalized the whole community of his small Hungarian hometown. Over a period of more than 30 years, thousands of citizens of different origins, ages, professions and social statuses gathered in Homonnai’s atelier to pose in front of his camera. In their work in progress, Boglárka Börcsök and Andreas Bolm invite the visitors of the PARKOUR to meet this ‘community of the dead’ in the form of a video installation entitled Night Bodies. Night Lights., exploring the relationship between photography and moving image as a choreography of society – a Danse Macabre.
