Relics of Socialist Architecture – PART 2: HUNGARY

From 22.6. – 24.7. 2015, I’m working on my second part of video-art project “RELICS OF SOCIALIST ARCHITECTURE IN EASERN BLOC”, researching and collecting archival film footage at OSA Archivum, Central European University and filming around Budapest and even south in Dunaújváros, the artificial socialist town founded and constructed in 1950’s. Thanks all collaborators on this project for their kind support – especially: Kati Gadoros (OSA), prof. Isztvan Rév (OSA), Alessandro Grimaldi (L’altra Budapest), Anna Mária Nagy (Dunaújváros specialist), Dumitru Rusu (Socialist Modernism / B.A.C.U – Romania), Ewa Rosiak-Zieba, Hakeem Smith, Eszter Lázar (OSA fellows), Mathew G. Erdo (editor), Gáspár Hájdu (, Belle Belle (music composer), Lily Nagy, Enikő Váczy & András Nagy (my awesome roommates).
