The archives of the future exist in the present. The archives, as constructions based on certain orders and systems, can get rearrangeable and reconstructable when we look at them with new information or with a new point of view. The new point of view brings with itself a new interpretation and the possibility of reconsideration.
Seven students of the Photography Department of the Kaposvár University asks the classic list of questions of Gauguin: "Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?" They find the answers for these questions by examining their own archives, family albums, private photos, getting to know their own personal stories and by examining history in a private way. While doing their work, they travel between timelines, their artistic gestures are characterized by expropriation, recreation, addition and also appears the snapshot esthetics of private photos, the special photo types and the design elements of private photos. The seven different points of view give seven different interpretations, so in the work of Viktória Balogh, Krystyna Bilak, Gergely Kiss, Kata Magyarósi, Norbert Mészár, Petra Pálházi and Eszter Alexandra Szalai time's dimensions get some reconsideration.
The participants of the alterNATIVE exhibition, reflecting on the particularities of photography, are looking for the possibilities of remembering and reminding, as well as the possibilities of forgetting and making people forget, widening the limits of media they reconsider the past that became present and they point into the future.
