The idea of this experimental show was to break the boundaries between artists and curators. We proposed to make an exhibition completely clueless to the curator, who was forced to collaborate with two other ones. They three had to compose the exhibition, its meaning and path.

The main curator placed the works as he thought they must be displayed; the second one wrote a text about the relation of the word Aggtelek with some objects; the third one felt manipulated because he couldn’t understand the meaning of the show. He then forced the artists to wear mascot heads at the opening, making them feel as his puppets.

Who was curating and who creating?.
