Noordkaap in Budapest
Last July Noordkaap was active in Budapest. The team researched the influence and impact of Populist tedencies on artists, cultural institutions (musea, galleries, art initiatives), philosophers and activists in Hungaria. Monica Aerden (Dutch artist and editor of art magazine Mister Motley), Hans van den Ban (Dutch artist and advisor Rijksbouwmeester) and Alexander Schikowski (German/ Hungarian artist and activist in Budapest) interviewed a broad scala of colleagues. Budapest is the 4th city of Noordkaap European Tour. This tour stop will result in a new edition of our independant newspaper, the NK Times (expected in October 2012), a documentary and new art projects with artists from Hungaria.
