The Therapy is the main exhibition of the Küszöb Festival which reflects on the situation of the youngest generation of artist. The project used the group therapy(Therapy is not the proper psychological term, it would be the self-awareness group) as a tool to be able to show the way how the young artists see today their present and future in Hungary. Two psychologist lead the self-awareness group of the ten young artists who were chosen by the curator. At the group events the artists started to discuss the personal difficulties of the career-start and tried define the errors of the current institutional system.
Based on the experience of the last years and the therapy the participants aimed to formulate suggestions which could solve the problems of the institutional system, but do not require huge financial funding. The exhibited artworks were created at the end of the therapy and they are reactions to the current situation of the exhibiting artists and to the imperfections of the institutional system of the contemporary art.
