From August 2019 to July 2020, Dóra Maurer, a Hungarian fine artist, has a retrospective exhibition at Tate Modern in London.

Despite her prominent talents, to get into one of the world's leading contemporary institutions is a very complex process which requires the work of many other people. Attila Pőcze, head of the Vintage Gallery, has been representing Dóra Maurer in the art world for many years. On the occasion of this retrospective we spoke to him about their collaboration and the importance of this exhibit at Tate Modern.
