The first of the 2024 International Curator Residents to visit FSAS, Eszter Lázár, as a member of the OFF-Biennale Budapest curatorial team, will share the main milestones in the history of the Biennale since its foundation and the next edition planned for spring 2025 while also discussing how the biennale can address the current cultural politics in Hungary.

OFF-Biennale Budapest started in 2014 as a grassroots initiative, set up by a small group of artists to create a platform for exchange between artists and other members of society as a means to testify to the independence, resilience, and capability of the local art scene in Hungary. Since then, OFF has become an internationally acclaimed event, with three successful editions and it also participated as a lumbung member at the documenta fifteen in Kassel 2022.
