Book Marks: Revisiting the Hungarian Art of the 60s and 70s
(1000 items available)
Book Marks presents a comprehensive panorama of a two-decade period of Hungarian art that was hidden both from the international audience and from the art market in its own time, introducing the most important Hungarian artists of a generation who started their careers in the 1960s. The book presents the historical context these artists worked in, looking at the politico-cultural conditions, the local artistic traditions and the international inspirations and dialogues. The historical backdrop unfolded in the essays come alive in the interviews conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist with seven major artists of the period: Imre Bak, Gyorgy Jovanovics, Ilona Keseru, Katalin Ladik, Dora Maurer, Vera Molnar and Istvan Nadler.
