The trilingual, English/Hungarian/German publication From Fake Mountain to Faith (Hungarian Trilogy) by Szabolcs KissPál will be launched on 12 January at 5pm at Project Arts Centre. This 253-page book is edited by Edit Molnár and Zoltán Kékesi and published by Edith- Russ-Haus for Media Art, Oldenburg and Revolver Press, with the support of Goethe- Institut Budapest, tranzit.ro Cluj, and Edith-Russ-Haus.
Together with the analytical and critical essays, interviews, texts by Edit András, Zoltán Kékesi, and Szabolcs KissPál, and documents representing the project from several perspectives, the listing and description of the objects as “archaeological finds” constitutes the core of this book.
The publication will be presented by Szabolcs KissPál and Edit Molnár, director Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art, Oldenburg.
Limited copies are available at the launch and later at the Project bookshop. Price: 25 EUR
From Fake Mountains to Faith (Hungarian Trilogy) investigates political communities as complicatedly constructed entities. Departing from the current authoritarian Hungarian state policy and the creation of ‘illiberal democracy’, the work examines institutional and historical narratives while looking at the shifting political and public perspective on trauma and memory.
