Further information about the previous year's Guest Space programmes in LABOR: 

LABOR was founded in 2007 as a joint initiative of C3 Centre for Culture &
Communication Foundation, the Studio of Young Artists Association (FKSE) and
the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (MKE) in the premises of the former
Studio Gallery. 

LABOR is a platform where the objectives of partner institutions appear jointly:
• support of emerging artists
• projects related to the contemporary art education
• experimental 
initiatives advancing or reflecting on the structural changes of the 
contemporary art world
• cooperation between art and the scientific 
and technical domains 
• events organized in the framework of international collaborations. 

The purpose of the collaboration is to create a flexible, shared (art) space
that provides a platform for art research as well as exhibitions, projects and
occasional events.

LABOR aims to emphasize the social responsibility of contemporary art and its
role in knowledge production. It organizes discursive programs to strengthen
the debate- and discussion-culture of the local art world involving other
fields of culture. LABOR recently opened Book Space, a reading room and
library where current theoretical texts, magazines, and publications on visual
culture are available.
