Hear from influential artist Dóra Maurer on her life and the diversity of her output

Maurer was at the centre of the Hungarian neo-avant-garde. Her work explores movement, displacement, perception and transformation. The current display at Tate Modern spans over five decades.

This is a unique chance to hear the artist in conversation with Tate Modern Director Frances Morris and curator Lívia Páldi​. There will be an opportunity for audience questions and contributions after the talk.


Dóra Maurer

She is active in a number of genres and media. Aside from paintings, she produces graphic work, photography, film and installations. Her series that employ geometry, colour theory and various theories of perception are at once playful experiments and scientific observations.
