Lili Farkas-Zentai’s favorite: “saving a world fading into oblivion for posterity: Zsófia Mohos talks about the everydays of the old ladies living in the old villages of Hungary through her beautiful photos, driven by her personal connection.”
Noémi Viski ‘s favorite: “it pulls us out of the dominance of the latest designer projects and takes us back to the past, to one of the most important events of Hungarian design history: the foundation of the Design Center. A brief, easy-to-read abstract of Kitti Mayer’s research conducted under a scholarship is a must-have for those interested in Hungarian design.”
Réka Vikárius’s favorite: „not only the writing itself, but the visuality of the article is also very personal and sensitive. A tone like this makes it possible to connect with landscapes unknown or alien to us.”
Kitti Mayer’s favorite: “the project it showcases breaks with everything we have thought about jewelry until now.Patrícia Harsány’s challenge is a vivid example of how an artist responds to the problems posed by the coronavirus.”
Nicolett Kovács’s favorite: „I love the mission of Contemporary Architecture Center’s Othernity project and our related articles related very much and my ultimate favorite is the piece on the OKISZ headquarters. Besides being a fan of the building, Kitti Mayer provides a comprehensive overview of the most exciting details while Balázs’s photos portray the beauty of brutalism vividly.“
