A cross-section of a group of neo-avant-garde artists who have been working on a revision of Hungarian constructivist and avant-garde traditions since the late 1960s. Using the techniques and practices of performing arts and using photography and dynamic images, they attempted to create a new communication and visual language closely linked to the contemporary atmosphere of Communist Hungary in the 70s and 80s of the last century.
