Subjective Atlas of Hungary awarded Henry van der Velde 2012 label
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.
