She studied photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest and at Esag Penninghen in Paris, as well as art history and aesthetics at ELTE University in Budapest.

Benedek Bognár (1986) lives and works in Budapest. He holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in photography from the Moholy-
Nagy University of Art and Design. In 2012 he studied performance and video art at the Estonian Academy of Art in Tallinn on an
Erasmus scholarship. His series of works address issues related to current social phenomena, aiming to create unusual or new
perspectives. He is primarily concerned with the symptoms of virtuality, digitalization, and the age of image-based communication.
In his work, he often reflects on photography itself as a medium capable of creating the illusion of an objective representation
of the world and its role in the process of human cognition. In his recent work, he has been concerned with modern myths and
the general human need for irrational stories to explain the world. In his thesis, Genesis, he examined how the entertainment
and advertising industries use the patterns, archetypes, and topoi from which humanity’s ancient great myths were built, from
the perspective of the functioning of consumer society. In his work CUI PRODEST, which he is working on under the József Pécsi
Photography Scholarship, he deals with the pseudo-news and disinformation of the world, which are based on irrational contexts
and enemy images instead of scientific paradigms.
