BOOK LAUNCH - âWe are not ducks on a pond but ships at sea*
On the occasion of the ANA launch we will present the book WE ARE NOT DUCKS ON A POND BUT SHIPS AT SEA* introduced by Rita Kalman.
"This book endeavors to introduce the independent art scene of the past 20 years in Budapest as well as to provide assistance to interpret its relation to the economic and 'ideological' framework of society. The book offers a missing biography, providing a reference for understanding the relationship between the self-organized and the institutionalized, and the manifold ways in which these structures mutually shape one another. It is about projects set up by non-bureaucratic structures which emerge and are transformed along various schemes before disappearing. It is about sites, which elude self-definition and almost never leave behind any documented trace." (Katarina Sevic)
