1999-2000, 12 art installations in a shop window display & 12 interactive art pages on the Internet
public art project with Beatrix Szorenyi

In 1999, my friend and I found an abandoned shop window in the center of Budapest and decided to reuse it like an independent gallery. So from 24/02/2000 until 23/02/2001, we realized a large-scale public art project in the window of 10/c Hattyu street, I. district, Budapest + on the website.
Each month we built art installations in our window + we uploaded twelve independent but mutually understandable artistic interactive web pages to the project site. We had constantly created installations and websites, publicized the reactions of residents, attendees, viewers, and e-mailers, and created a photo collection of international visual art window exhibits over the past 100 years, and soo many exciting things happened. Step by step ART WINDOW grew into an international contemporary exhibition space.

After one year of our exhibition series - having received international interest - we ran the Art Window Gallery as a non-profit exhibition space, where 36 foreign and Hungarian exhibitors showed a variety of artistic ideas. We never got any support for maintaining the Art Window Gallery; only the enthusiasm of artists ran our space.

ART WINDOW GALLERY exhibited at the "Hidden scene in the 1990's - The artist as a curator" exhibition of the Ludwig Museum Budapest - Museum of Contemporary Art, 2002.

The entire material of the Art Window Project was processed in the form of a CD ROM in 2004. The CD-ROM is in Hungarian and in English, it contains all artists, exhibitions, collections, correspondences, videos, web pages, audience / visitor reactions, police reports, related interviews, reviews and newspaper articles, as well as the curriculum vitaes, contact details, and exhibitions of all exhibitors.
ART WINDOW CD-ROM won the Mediawave Festival's Creative Prize and it was presented at several exhibitions and events.
