From Tyranny to Liberty... A Personal Story

BY BILL SUHAYDA
@ VOL 6 ON FEB 16, 2017

In an all-too-rate look at life behind the Iron Curtain, Bill Suhayda explores the conditions that caused the Hungarian people to revolt against both Soviet occupation and the tyranny of communism in the country of his birth. In 1956, some 200,000 people fled Communist Hungary; Bill’s family was among those people risking their lives to escape. Bill dedicated his presentation to those people in Hungary, Austria, and the United States who helped his family escape from tyranny, and those Americans who helped his family assimilate into American culture.

Szofita

Organizer Attila Bujdoso sends in this great look at the presentation from Hungarian designer Szofita, from last month's PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 15. At our Vol.15 event in Budapest we had a great international line-up in front of 450 people! One of the best presentations was definitely given by a young female designer Szofita from Hungary. She is still a student but already has a great work portfolio. It was really impressive to see the great diversity of her works including animation graphics, fashion design and graphic design. She introduced her collection of rings -- each of them incorporates a tiny little world. All rings are unique and are both designed and manufactured by her. At the end of her PechaKucha presentation she showed animation work she did in collaboration with Emil Goodman and Menzkie. The motion graphincs were commissioned by Music Television Hungary and later also shown on MTV UK. Take a look, I bet it is worth it. Below, more images from Szofita's presentation.

Eszter Pasztor

As a follow-up to our previous post on Budapest's recent and upcoming PKNs, organizer Attila Bujdoso sends us the following on one of the stand-out presentations from that city's Vol. 16. It featured Eszter Pasztor talking about her "Bodvalenke - Fresco Village" project. This very special project focuses on one of Hungary's most deprived ghetto villages. Bódvalenke is a remote, small village in North-Eastern Hungary. The village -- which has high unemployment rate and is harmed by social segregation -- is inhabited by many gypsies. Led by a Miskolc painter, János Horváth, gypsy painters will decorate the walls of the houses of the village with murals. The murals will present the life, legends, dreams, sorrows and desires of the Gypsy. In the first phase they have already painted the walls of some 15-17 houses. Thus they create a communal art work and wish to open up this tiny remote village for tourists. Tourism and attention would hopefully help turn this village and could bring work opportunities and a better life circumstances to the villagers. You can see a few photos of Pasztor presenting here, and also learn more at this website for the project in question.

Concrete Easter Eggs

PechaKucha Night in Budapest organizer Attila Bujdoso sends in this story, about how funds were raised at the city's Inspire Japan event. All photos were taken by Tóth Máté.The sprinkling and giving of Easter eggs are flourishing traditions in Hungary, widely practiced at Easter time. According to this folk custom, on Easter Monday, in the early mornings, young men visit women and sprinkle them with cold water or perfume. In return, the women give nicely decorated Easter eggs to the men. Lately, in modern times, the hand-painted eggs are often substituted by chocolate eggs. The Easter egg became an icon of the Hungarian Easter folk custom, preparing and decorating Easter eggs show a living example and vivid presence of folk art. The history of sprinkling and giving Easter eggs can be traced back to an ancient fertility cult as well. VPI Architects, a Budapest based young design team, has designed and produced special edition Easter eggs this year: Easter eggs made out of concrete. They paired the old tradition with a new material, and once following the tradition, all steps during the production process were made by hand. They used a special mix of concrete which gave an extra smooth surface. The concrete Easter eggs are decorated with lace strips, which evoke the traditional decoration motives of Easter eggs, but also give them an extra layer of sensuality. The concrete Easter eggs played a central role at the recent PechaKucha Night Budapest event, which celebrated a concrete special edition. The event organizers (Hungarian Contemporary Architecture Centre and Bujdosó Attila) joined the Inspire Japan initiative of Tokyo-based PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. The concrete Easter eggs were sold by auction and the income was sent as a donation for the Architecture for Humanity to support reconstruction works after the earthquake and tsunami disaster, which happened in Japan in March 2011.
