The exhibition Underworld is a tribute to the city and citizens. It showcases three of Adam Magyar’s series for each of which he developed a unique technique that reveals new dimensions in photography. In its dynamics, Magyar’s ultimately utopistic perspective discloses ever-present but never-seen layers of the city and depicts citizens as elementary particles acting in the greater whole, embedded in their functional progress.
Come along and glide over squares to see city vertigoes, stop at a crossing where everyone is rushing by or dive deep into the subway tunnels and marvel at the tranquility and beauty of life as aestheticized by Adam Magyar.
