netWorks @ MAGMA
group exhibition


The exhibition entitled netWorks of the MAGMA Contemporary Art Space selects from artworks of artists from Romania, Hungary and Slovenia based on and visualizing networks. The exhibition wishes to present artworks and projects based on some kind of network, connection system in a wider framework of interpretation. In connection with networks, most of us probably think of the Internet, and within, social networking sites; there is one artwork which uses the World Wide Web as a source, but most of the artworks are based on other kinds of networks.
The exhibition includes Mădălina BRAȘOVEANU’s research project entitled ARTISTS UNDER SURVEILLANCE: Traces of the Oradea – Târgu Mureş – Sfântu Gheorghe Artistic Network in the Archives of the Former Securitate, Judit ANGEL’s interview with Albert-László BARABÁSI network researcher as well as The Garden of Correspondence Art / Ray Johnson’s website project from the archives of the ARTPOOL Art Research Centre from Budapest.
