As part of SRIAT (“Social Responsibility in Art Today”) I spent several evenings with fellow artists and workshop organizer, Thomas Klipper working experimentally in public space in Budapest, Hungary.
Exploring politically or culturally charged sites of Budapest, we targeted a number of public statues, such as Ronald Reagan, a bronze policeman, among others. These ‘guerrilla sculptures’ address social and political issues like the banning of dumpster-diving or censorship. The documentation of these interventions is currently displayed as part of an installation “At Wang’s” the Ex-Chinese restaurant, Bartók Béla út 2, in Budapest.
One of our interventions regarding censorship was featured in the daily news.
