3B – that is Buenos Aires, Barcelona and Budapest. The first meeting point of the South American, Mediterranean and Eastern Europen abstract expressionist painting takes place in Flux Gallery, where six young artist- one from Buenos Aires, two from Barcelona and three from Hungary- present their artworks based on colors, gestures and abstractions.
The two curators, Agustin Eyssartier and Ákos Bánki met two years ago in an atelierhouse in Barcelona. The first exhibition organised with their contribution took place last year in Latarka Gallery. The aim of the exhibition 3B is to continue the work and stimulate cooperations between artists from the two cities. The next stage of the exhibition series is going to take place in Barcelona.
Latarka is a young gallery established in 2013 by four curators: Tomasz Piars, István Bársony, Esse Bánki Ákos and me. It gives space for emerging young artist from Hungary, Poland, and from other countries. Latarka is based in Polish Institute Budapest.

Catalogue of my projects 2013-2014
The exhibition represents the young generation of contemporary Hungarian art, the subversive tendencies, which point out to the crisis of displaying the body in an artistic way. The ecstasy of the organs means that the conventional boundaries of the body have been already dissolved, the human is inseparably mixed with the animal-machine-digital realities. At the same time this limit loss is a sensual, so an artistic event as well. In the ex-tasy, in the getting-outside-of himself comes the post-human perspective into being, which does not deny sexus and sexuality, just releases them from the shackles of the anthropocentric view. The bodies still enjoy and suffer, regardless of the body they are located, and whether there is any organism at all to which they belong. It is established, that the world’s magnificence has been enriched by a new, post-human beauty: the extasy of becoming-else. The ambivalent poetry of Organs & Extasy fills the wasteland between the beauty and the ugliness with transitional figures, which preserve traces of the social and aesthetic forms of humanism. However, it is the state of becoming-else, when we do not know whether to celebrate or bury the old order, rather we give free rein to the extasy of images.
The independent gallery "mű-Vész Pince" was established by three young artists Bánki Ákos, Esse Bánki Ákos and Tomasz Piars. During two years we organised 25 exhibitions for more than 100 artists. It functioned as a meeting place for young creators who were recently graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
