2B Gallery and TELEP Gallery are pleased to announce the international exhibition supported by the French Institute / Institut Français Budapest called ‘Building Materials of the City’ which is taking place at two venues.

The expression city can be interpreted broadly, but in terms of geography it refers to a certain kind of land use in a region. It is a densely populated large area that consists of residential areas, industrial and commercial zones. Budapest, Miskolc, Párizs, Marseille… urbanized territories made up of countless streets and districts that all preserve the imprints of different architectural styles and ages. The history and cultural history of the 20th century had a great impact on the style and material of the buildings.

It is a fundamental feature of cities that they need to serve only one species: the human. Due to the urbanistic and gentrification processes of the last couple of decades the heterogeneous urban environment and its maintenance have become important for the citizens. The materials composing the city lie around in the urban space for weeks or months as objects, competing with the public sculptures and street furniture before they would be used and frozen into buildings. Of course, not only these appearing and disappearing heaps can show the materials of the city, there are a lot of more romantic ways to look into the body of a building. Crumbling plasters, reconstructions, demolitions and collapsed houses.
