, whose first chapter can be read online

Click judiciously; the site is called instant epilePSY
and not without reason. If you need annoying and occasionally baffling animated GIFs culled from Hungarian music videos, however, you'll be well served. (Some
of the loopings
are fairly clever.)

The Origo Gallery's recent exhibition
features Gyorgy Kemenyi's new works, but for a chronological context it's best to start with his earlier exhibition
. The Gallery's archives
provide an interesting cross section of a few Hungarian contemporary artists.
