The 1960s and 1970s were a fascinating period in the history of Hungarian modern art, not to mention in the history of the country itself. As the short-lived revolution of 1956 gave way to oppressive communist rule, artists of the neo-avant-garde found themselves increasingly isolated, their work condemned not only by the authorities but also by a largely conservative public. By focusing on the social and political circumstances unique to Hungary at the time, this book provides an unrivalled analysis of the ways in which the neo-avant-garde practised within a system – of doublespeak and more – that was determined to deny them their autonomy.
