Specific Aspects of the Pedagogical Turn of the 1970s in Hungary / The work of Péter Forgács, István Sinkó & István Rév and the educational films of the Balázs Béla Studio

08 December 2023-14 January 2024
Opening: 7th of December 23, 7pm.

Curator: Virag Lődi

The exhibition focuses on specific creative engagements within public education by intellectuals of the late Kádár-era in Hungary, introducing democratic and critical attitudes and methods. The exploration of media artist Péter Forgács's complex experiment in aesthetic education between 1974 and 78 constitutes the axis of the exhibited material, but another semi-illegal school workshop led by economic historian István Rév and painter István Sinkó is also evoked. The political and social contexts of these pedagogical experiments are given more depth by the inclusion of a series of educational films made at the time in the Balázs Béla Studio, also highlighting the importance and educational aspects of the studio’s social film distribution program. The exhibition treats the above cultural practices within the intersection of pedagogy and art.

When is happiness possible?

Exhibition by h.arta group /

Opening: 17 April 2014, 7 pm

tranzit. ro/ Cluj
Str. Brassai Sámuel, nr. 5

Curator: Attila Tordai-S.

Is happiness an individual matter, is it possible in the vicinity of others` unhappiness? In a context of extreme right discourses becoming increasingly visible in the public space, where the intrusion of capital in all aspects of society being increasingly obvious, where losing the inalienable rights such as water and clean air are lost, and the extreme disrespect for life becomes acceptable, how to overcome the idea of happiness as a prescription, of happiness as a duty of the neoliberal individual? The project examines the promotion of violence, the removal and concealment of those unhappy, the double standards, the transforming of despair and poverty in individual guilt in a society where the word "happiness" follows us from billboards, from media, from the norms of everyday life.

opening speech:
Zsuzsa Selyem

Lost and Lost grew out of the project Gilles, the Postman. Zsolt Visky initiated and carried out a slow courier service transporting small packages from person to person throughout Europe by bicycle. Starting in Cluj, he connected people across great distances, delivering to Budapest, Vienna, Venice, Basel, Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Paris, London and many places in between, inviting participants to be a part of what happened in the time and space covered by the route. The project aimed to slow down interactions, showing a different way to relate to the fast-paced world, while proposing an alternative way to communicate with the people in our lives.

Children should be supervised when consuming this product

exhibition by Vlad Iepure /

Time: 28 January - 12 February
Venue: tranzit. ro/ Cluj, Brassai Sámuel Street, no. 5, Cluj-Napoca
Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 3-6 pm.

Curator: Attila Tordai-S.

The exhibition is devoted to the sunflower seed whose trading succeeded to bypass both the control of socialist and communist regimes and also the neoliberal one for a good period of time. Eventually it became one of the most regulated products in Romania. By law it is decided how and where you can produce, distribute, consume or discard the rest.

The project is based on a research of the modes of production and distribution of the sunflower seeds (Floarea Soarelui), on what Romanians often consider as specific local and traditionally Romanian. The artist presents different sunflower seeds from South America, Germany, Hungary etc. which arrive as products on the local market. All this happens in the context that Romania is one of the leading exporters of the sunflower seeds.
