quotesY“There is a very marked difference between exposure abroad and acceptance at home. It seems that a twofold standard exists in evaluating contemporary artists, and the international success of young artists are often of little consequences at home, where the criteria of the latest discourse may not fully apply.”

-Gabor Andrasi and Andras Zwickl, “Contemporary Art in the Nineties,” The History of Hungarian Art in the 20th Century
