What does it mean to be present in our lives or in the world nowdays ? How do we influence our own life, destiny and what are the life strategies that form day to day our present and how do all these effect the environment that surrounds us? Do we have connections with current events, happenings in the world or are we rather locked up in our own privacy and inner world? And does the present’s constant visual torrent of stimuli allow us to experience conscious presence at all?This year’s RANDOM selection intends to define the notion of presence, along with the relation of individual and society, moreover presenting significant positions of contemporary Hungarian photography.
