Self-objectification, female artistic positions
The topic of the latest exhibition of the Ybl Buda Creative House is self-objectification, i.e. the phenomenon when the artist looks at his/her own identity, world of experiences and the inner perception of him/herself in an objective manner. The exhibition displays the related works of six Hungarian artists: Anna Fabricius, Ilona Lovas, Zuzsa Moizer, Judit Rabóczky, Klára Petra Szabó and Kata Tranker.
The topic of our latest exhibition overarches a special spiritual-psychological work based creative activity, the artistic manifestation of self-objectification. Self-objectification represents a practice in fine arts, when the artist places his/her own identity, subjective world of experiences and the internal perception of him/herself into the outer world, and looks at it in an objective, down-to-earth manner. Thus the artist at his/her own will exposes his/her won body, self and opinion in an artictic adaptation, and exhibits, and shares all these in the offline and online space.
As an antipode of objectification by others there is another, philosophical form of objectification, free from the abuse of power, in which self-analysis and the analysis of social gender roles are connected in accordance with the intention of the person creating the content. The critical introduction and criticism of social gender role based stereotypes through self-objectification have been increasingly important artistic practices since the 1960s.

It is a multi-layered material that captures the viewpoint of the audience at an ever-expanding walk of life.
