1950 – peter_forgacs


Péter Forgács is a media artist and independent filmmaker based in Budapest. He started his studies in 1971 at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts but was dismissed in the same year. In the late 1970s and ’80s he collaborated with the contemporary music ensemble Group 180. Between 1978 and 1993 he worked in the Balázs Béla Studio. In 1983 he established the Private Photo & Film Archives Foundation (PPFA) in Budapest, a unique collection of amateur film footage and has made this material the raw data for his re-orchestrations of history. He has received several international festival awards and his works have been exhibited worldwide.
