Már megint vásároltál te kis huncut

2009 I Budapest

Már megint vásároltál te kis huncut? (Again going shopping, you naughty?) was a stencil I sprayed around Budapest right before the economic crises. That year, another incredibly large shopping mall opened. This one, took up the whole area in between the park, where I used to go horse riding as a child, and the oldest and most beautiful cemetery of the city. The mall ruined the peaceful green surroundings, and it became a heartbreaking example of the invasive capitalisation of the public space. As a playful reminder to the visitors, I sprayed this question all along the street leading to the mall
