About the curatorial work by Zsuzsanna Ardó
Very imaginative use of montage and typography and only dawned on me afterwards how advanced this was.
Orde Eliason, The PrintRoom Promoting Contemporary Photography
The exhibition looks fabulous in situ, both for its immediate visual impact and for piquing people's interest so that they take a closer look to ‚get‘ each image's meaning… A pioneering project in many ways. Balázs would be pround!
Adam Tuck, BAFTA
The exhibition captures incredibly well the ideas that Balázs was trying to communicate.
Mark Stanton, Berghahn Books – Film Series Editor
