Our aim is to continue the discussion of the theoretical work of Vilém Flusser and to demonstrate the importance of his writings regarding the European, in particular Hungarian, context. Invited international and Hungarian speakers will present lectures dealing with the elements of provocation and play, key concepts of Flusser's oeuvre, and on media metaphors and intersubjectivity, as well as drawing parallels to the recent theoretical media issues of our region. The two-day symposium held at the Mûcsarnok will be accompanied by an exhibition of works by Hungarian artists reflecting on Flusser, presented in the ExplorationLab, media gallery of C3. The official opening of the entire series of events will coincide with the opening of the exhibition "Reflections on Flusser" on March 15, 18:00, at C3. The symposium takes place March 16-17, 10:00-19:00, at the Mucsarnok (Kunsthalle Budapest), Torley Terem, at Hosok tere (Heroes Sq.). All lectures and discussions will be simultaneously translated in Hungarian, English and German. Over two evenings, public events at Goethe-Institut Budapest will also expand upon the works of Flusser. There will also be multimedia presentations by Hungarian artists and media experts, as well as the presentation of two Hungarian translations of Flusser's works. These events take place on March 18 at 18:00 and March 19 at 19:00.
