Digital Smog

The effects of the year 2020  and the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic practically necessitate digital presence. Meanwhile, the flood of images is in a continous growth, political leaders, celebrities, services, religious denominations and movements try to seize our attention. Torrents of advertisements flood us in the online fuss. Entering this kind of digital smog, many a time we are forced to wear a metaphorical individual mask which functions as a sort of filter in the selection and reception of recent stimuli.

VARGHA Balázs, member of the Publicritic 2021’s jury summarized the Digital Smog exhibition with these words: "It’s good to see that a new platform is being born in which free space is given to the responsible, constructive critical attitude of a growing generation of creators. And it is also an example of how suggestively creative visual communication can address the public, especially on a large and public scale."

Peripheries - 2022
People are in a constant flow between centers and peripheries, the same way as thoughts, value systems, and cultures. Reflecting on them contributes to self-understanding and self-definition of ourselves, our time, our culture. What might be the short- and long-term beneficial or harmful effects of peripheries? In many cases, for example, normality is also marginalized. But we can also think about minorities, the differences between downtowns and the suburbs, or between cities and villages, human relations, the need for uniqueness, acceptance of gender orientation and identity, tolerance or the lack of it, and other kinds of peripheral issues.

“One of the most exciting genres in the visual arts is when a work of art is in direct contact with reality and responds to it in a creative, witty, or even dramatic way. It is a complex tool of communication that can and does reach a very wide audience. And that is, in fact, the very essence of art.” Reflecting on the peripheries, this year's Publicritic entries “draw attention far beyond the clichés to social crises, some of which stem from very current events, others of which are themes that are practically ancient to humanity and are inherent to its nature. It was very exciting to see that,” said Melinda KISS, summing up the exhibition – member of the Publicritic jury, animation designer, Associate Professor, and Head of the Department of Amination and Media design at the Budapest Metropolitan University.
