BUDAPEST - SUBURB (2012)
The series “BUDAPEST - SUBURB” represents the documentary work about the
outlying areas of the Hungarian capital.
As with many other countries of Eastern Europe, about 20 years ago Hungary
also experienced gigantic transformation from the socialist society model
into a society built on the principles of free market economics and democracy.
For the purpose of redesigning the city, the municipal government decided
to reform the capital “completely” and tries to adjust it to the new European
standards, but the process of this transformation was concentrated only in
the downtown areas and tourist places, leaving in the periphery many signs
and artefacts of the past socialist history, which hide themselves in
the architecture, town scenery and social life.
