2013 I Budapest

Tetthely (Crime scene) was a temporary memorial which drew attention to the then-new Hungarian law, that criminalises homelessness. I invited seven artists to draw contours of bodies lying on a passage pavement in Budapest. Here, many homeless people had found their shelter before this law came into effect. These contours symbolised dramatically the deadly effects of such inhumane legislation. Those days, this action was unique in it’s kind, and fortunately, it was followed with good public and media feedback.
