Tapló - Indelicate Art Events Diary 1996-2006
Our foundation has supported a book project of Tibor Wehner art historian. He is a writer, a real penman who has been writing his diary since long. Now he selected his diary entries from the period 1996-2006. This important 10 year period is covering the change of Hungarian fine arts; how is our art reflecting the rocky road to free market economy? Mr. Wehner selected a sarcastic title Tapló to his 720 pages book. Tapló is a modified word of Napló which is Diary. Tapló has several meanings: touchwood, tinder, German tinder. The author giving this title implies to his critical touch of contemporary Hungarian art and art related events, with his frank and straightforward remarks. It is a pity that Tapló is in only Hungarian, because it is a essential source and reference book both for public and researchers. The book will be presented to the press and public in the Petőfi Literature Museum, on the 30th of April.
