The new exhibition of work by Viktor Kopasz is an outcome of his PhD thesis project. It will address related issues such as traditional versus digital book publishing in visual culture, the value of authors' books in a digital age, the limits of book publishing, and the presentation of contemporary photography in book form.
Viktor Kopasz was born in 1973 in Královsky Chlumec, an ethnically Hungarian region in the Southeast corner of Slovakia. In 1988, he started his studies of photography at the School of Applied Arts in Košice and then moved to Prague, where he attended FAMU (Prague Film and Television Academy, Department of Photography) from 1992 – 1997. Historically connected to the fate of three national communities and cultures, the topic of homeland and mixed identities are themes that can often be found in his work. Kopasz currently lives and works in Prague.
