This spring a book by Sándor Szilágyi, Neo-avant-garde Trends in Hungarian Art Photography, 1965-1984 has been published with the support of Art+Text Budapest. The book, like its Hungarian version published in 2007, presents some 400 works of art by 32 Hungarian artists of the 1960s, 1970s and the early 1980s. It undertakes to collect the greatest photographers of this vibrant and fruitful era from Géza Perneczky to Tibor Hajas and János Vető. Among the presented artists we can find photographers who refused the anachronistic aesthetics of the official photography, and artists who used the camera accepting the conceptual approach of the period.
