Roee Rosen, “The Buried Alive Group Videos: Historical Joke # 3,” 2013, (still). Image courtesy Galleria Riccardo Crespi, Milan, and the artist.OFF-Biennale was the inaugural edition of an art event that mobilized seemingly all of Budapest's nongovernmental art, semi-art and entirely nonart spaces on both sides of the Danube, to present diverse works by some 200 local and international contemporary artists. Running a month-long marathon of daily exhibition openings and one-time performances in galleries, bars, a hair salon, an electricity factory and numerous outdoor public spaces (April 24 -May 31), the majority of the biennale took place in the Hungarian capital – its contextual home and a city that uniquely merges both socialist and imperial ruin aesthetics – but some sister events were scattered as far as São Paulo and New York.
