Berlin Bhf. (banhof) is rooted in intimate issues of the artist’s personal life, emphasizing Berlin as a transitory place, a habitat of passengers. The series was also inspired by Hungarian authors’ Berlin experiences, their visions, stories, expectations, through which Tihanyi created image-text pairs to describe the temporary homes for these authors and herself. She paired each of her photographs with a literary quote, though the texts rather give a general atmosphere for the entire series than just illustrate one image.
The scenes take places in different interiors of Berlin and Budapest, showing (feelings and relations through these) moments of transitions. Through this timeless series Tihanyi observed the common aspect of rootlessness and alienation, the permament feeling of outcast and the desire of being integrated. Berlin Bhf. not only talks about history or memories, but as fictional, momentarily existing places, it shows misplaced and unsettling situations where people are uprooted from their origins, loved ones, and their center.
