Little Warsaw

Naming You

April 11 – June 8, 2014

The two Hungarian artists András Gálik and Bálint Havas, who live in Budapest, adopted the pseudonym Little Warsaw in 1999, when they started creating joint projects. In films, performance pieces, and installations, they examine history and its interpretation, collective consciousness and established visual languages and traditions. Much of their work grows out of an analysis of the ways society engages with its history; the artist’s own role as a producer of images, objects, or situations that are embedded in, or reflections of, a (historical) context is up for debate as well, as is the perception of works of art as a dynamic process subject to change as social and political realities shift.
