EUPHORIA? - Stories of a System Change

Budapest, Robert Capa Kortárs Fotográfiai Központ, 30 December 2019 - 23 February 2020
During the historical period of the system change beginning in the mid-eighties and partially completed by the free elections in 1990, Hungary broke with the oppressive party-state regime and became a democratic and pluralistic republic.
Euphoria – this is the word that seems to express the most accurately the intense feelings the change of regime in Hungary provoked amongst those who welcomed it. The multifarious contents that this word conveys, relating to the revolutionary vision, the promising signs, and then the certainty and the potentials of the transition, greatly vary from person to person. Was it intense happiness; the ecstasy of freedom; the prospect of obtaining justice; the fulfillment of the desire to join Europe; or artificial stupefaction? On the one hand, the question mark in the title aims to ask what these euphoric experiences mean 30 years later for those who went through them. On the other hand, in the context of the system change, euphoria is an umbrella term covering a multitude of personal system-change stories.
