Subjective Atlas of Hungary, along with the Mexican edition, won the prestigious Henry van der Velde 2012 design label.
In this atlas 50 young contributors – mainly artists, designers, architects, doers, hackers, activists – selected through an open call were asked to put Hungary in their own personal perspectives and reflect upon their cultural and national identity. Co-edited with Annelys de Vet, Dutch designer and originator of the concept of the subjective atlas series, we co-published the atlas with HVG Publisher. The book attracted quite some intensive media attention in Hungary ever since and also sells pretty well.
I flew to Brussels last week for the award giving ceremony.
