*founded in 2013, Marleen Leitner and Michael Schitnig both live in Graz

In the frame of their residency in Budapest, studio ASYNCHROME investigated the various entanglements and networks of the sociopolitical life within the city´s structures. Important contextual points of question dealt with "Memory Politics" as well as "Rewriting History". Amongst other topics, the artists dedicated their time in Budapest to search for monumental changes, which can already be seen in the public space. Considering the upcoming controversial celebrations of the Trianon complex´ 100th anniversary in 2020, studio ASYNCHROME want to discuss those tendencies and populist mobilization strategies. Especially, since these developments raise essential social and European questions on a chronological axis of the past, the present and the future.
