Throughout her career, Dóra Maurer has been at the centre of a community of Hungarian artists championing culture outside of the official socialist system. This community has been responsible for organising exhibitions in apartments and publishing underground journals.
Trained as a graphic artist in the 1950s, Maurer pushed the medium to its limit by experimenting.
In the 1970s she started to work in photography and moving image, alongside working with musicians and teaching preformative workshops.
She developed geometric and abstract drawings and paintings in the 1970s and beyond.
Movement, perception and transformation have been consistent to her work. Never tied down to one medium, Maurer’s unique voice is constantly evolving.
