During Art Market Budapest works of EU4Art students were displayed on the exhibition stand of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (HUFA) between 6th and 9th October. The artefacts dealt with the ways how students coped with the recent global and personal crises at an international level. The selection represented not only traditional techniques, but fresh tendencies and new mediums as well. On the fair collectors and art lovers could discover new talents and gained an overview about the profile of each EU4Art member institution. Furthermore, the event offered an unique retail opportunity for the students, as all displayed works were on sale.
