The Media Pioneers Zbigniew Rybczyński and Gábor Bódy

The path of the two artists Gábor Bódy (1946-1985) and Zbigniew Rybczyński (*1949, Wroclaw) have never crossed. However, the exhibition presenting the oeuvre of the two, first opened at fall 2011 in the Akademie der Künste, Berlin, and then in the ZKM Media Museum at the beginning of 2012, made it possible for them to meet. On the occasion of the exhibition this catalogue has been published.

This publication introduces two pioneers of new media: Zbigniew Rybczynski, from Poland, and Gábor Bódy, from Hungary. Rybczynski (born 1949) is a creator of experimental animations and a multimedia artist. Bódy (1946–1985) was considered one of the most important Hungarian filmmakers.
