About Trafó: Trafó House of Contemporary Arts in Budapest is an inviting and co-producing venue unique in Hungary, and is also a cornerstone of the international contemporary arts scene. Its performances, concerts, exhibitions, and community and audience-building programmes are accessible to all who look for something new. While focusing on younger generations, Trafó is a forum dedicated to social issues, and a platform for establishing values and contexts as well as generating new ideas and productions. Trafó’s professional programme of events, presented inside and outside of the former electric transformer house, trespasses genres, is diverse, experimental and audience-friendly, and inspired by new innovations as well as cultural heritage. In a unique and authentic manner it provides a space for the presentation of work by both domestic Hungarian and international artists.
About In our fascinating but unfortunately, harsh, and unfair world, it can be difficult to cope with situations or conditions that force us to confront our own and other’s vulnerability. Such situations can be overwhelming or leave us feeling powerless. The exhibition Crying until laughing/Sírás nevetésig brings together artists for whom humour is a catalyst to push beyond normative limitations and our perceived realities. These artists work with topics going from the everyday humdrum to geopolitics, from the simple embarrassment of blushing to the corporate imposed interests in our body and wellbeing, from the overwhelming pressures of social media to the burdens of having to succeed in life. They touch upon complex matters that most of us deal with. The exhibition is a collaboration between Trafó Gallery, Budapest and 1646 Experimental Art Space, The Hague.
