Igor & Ivan Buharov: Good opinion

Editors: Igor and Ivan Buharov, Dóra Hegyi
Publisher:, Budapest
Content: 197 pages
ISBN: 978-963-08-7366-6
Year: 2012

The Buharov brothers (aka Kornél Szilágyi and Nándor Hevesi) have been working together for over 15 years. Their surreal avant-garde films dance on the edge of art and cinematic art with a focus on social and political criticism.

The point of departure for the book by Igor and Ivan Buharov is their 2012 exhibition in Białystok, where they presented the film Rudderless extended in space, in the form of an installation. The artist book includes a selection of images of the films by Igor and Ivan Buharov from 1995 to 2011, as well as drawings, paintings, photos, and found images. Texts are taken from the films, and there are also quotations – from texts by, among others, Mikhail Bakunin, Piotr Kropotkin, Ottó Tolnai, István Domonkos – which are significant for the artists.
