Gyula Muskovics is a Budapest-based curator, writer, and artist who cofounded the Hollow immersive performance art group in 2018. His works and publications are motivated by a pull toward the edge and revolve around subversion, queer desire, intimacy, and the political potential of the body. He is currently a PhD candidate at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. His research is centered on avant-garde fashion in Eastern Europe in the 1980s and 1990s, with a focus on the work of Hungarian fashion designer Tamás Király (1952-2013). In 2023, as a recipient of a Fulbright fellowship, he is researching the intersection of the Eastern European underground and the downtown arts scene that evolved in New York City in the 1980s at The Museum of Modern Art and the Downtown Collection at New York University.
Writer Gyula Muskovics looks at the Georgian avant-garde fashion scene from the postcommunist transition, which began in 1991, to the present. Based on interviews and rarely seen archival footage, he gives insight into Tbilisi’s avant-garde fashion circles in the 1990s with a special focus on the Avant-garde Fashion Assembly.
