Groundings #6 – Eszter Szakács
We’re delighted to announce the release of four new text commissions by Dylan Huw, Omar Kholeif, Rebecca O’Dwyer and Eszter Szakács which have been published online through the Occasional Groundwork initiative Groundings. The series of co-commissioned texts by writers, artists, curators, and academics, explores themes of internationalism, sustainability, audience, and infrastructure within the context of the contemporary art biennial and the shift in conditions imposed by the ongoing pandemic.
Eszter Szakács is a researcher, curator and Ph.D. candidate at the University of Amsterdam, where she’s undertaking a project titled IMAGINART—Imagining Institutions Otherwise: Art, Politics, and State Transformation. Eszter is on the curatorial team of a grassroots civil initiative OFF-Biennale Budapest, and recently co-edited a forthcoming anthology with Naeem Mohaiemen, Solidarity Must Be Defended (tranzit.hu, Van Abbemuseum, SALT, Tricontinental, and Asia Culture Center).
