Sub Voce was the first large-scale exhibition of Hungarian video installations organised by Soros Foundation Fine Art Documentation Center in 1991 at Mucsarnok in Budapest. Included an open call procedure for selection of the exhibited works also providing financial support for productions. This procedural shift illustrated an unusually transparent process for Hungary at that time. Simultaneously with this show, Imago, Fin de siecle in Dutch Contemporary Art, a Dutch touring exhibition of video installations was exhibited in the same venue. The works of this high tech exhibition clearly demonstrated the differences between the established scenes in the Netherlands contrasting with the Hungarian situation, providing a strong impetus for future Hungarian video art production.
