From Turkish to Budapest Baths

By Jo Phillips

If you have read our previous article on The History of the Hammam , you know that nowadays Turkish baths can be found all over the world in all different kind of forms.

Another type of bath houses are Budapest Baths, which are also the topic of the new art project Budapest Baths at The London Arts Board. It’s presenting photographs by Christine Evans from the 16th of December 2016 to the 16th of January 2017. The London Arts Board is a dis-used municipal notice board on the corner of Peckham Road and Vestry Road in Camberwell and is now a gallery. Its aim is to give emerging artists the chance to have a solo exhibition in London and therefore, the Budapest Baths will be on display 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

She studied photography at the Arts University Bournemouth and graduated with a First Class Honours. Her works have been exhibited at K6 Gallery and The Old School House and she aims to capture the subtle coincidences of the world around us. You can explore more of her work here.
