János Baksa-Soós (1948) is an emblematic figure of the Hungarian alternative culture. He was the founder of the Kex Band, and also the author of its song-lyrics. As a singer, he influenced Tamás Cseh and Földes László Hobó. In 1971 he conducted a happenning together with Tamás St. Auby in Balatonboglár, and flew to West-Germany (FRG) in the same year. Here he started working as an artist under the name of Január Herceg (Prince January). First, he worked in Essen at the departement of Graphics. Later, having been accepted to the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, he became a student of Joseph Beuys and Gerhard Richter. His book, Terra Forming, was launched in 2000. In 2007 he had an exhibition titled Lét-határtalanság, (Limitlessness of Being) int he Museum Szent István.
István Csákány (1978) graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, in Dóra Maurer’s class in 2006. His conceptual art is typical of grand-scale and elaborated sculptures, which centered around the concept of work. In 2010, his project of Marcel Beruer Room won the Breuer-memorial tender, but the work has not been accomplished yet, while Bernsteinzhimmer, another work of his won the AICA-award last year. His installation titled Szellemtartás (Ghost keeping), presented at the Documenta 13 is now on display in the Museum Ludwig.
The Herczeg Klára-award is given in every year since 1998. Klára Herczeg, deceased in 1997, made the Studio of Young Artists Association heir in her Legacy, thereby supporting young artists. The Curatorial decided to ground an award named after the founder to grant it to one artist each year. This foundation is the junior award. As the founder cast the dialogue of generations important, the supervisor of the heritage ( Dr. Székely Ádámné Dr. Szűts Ildikó) appointed the Studio of Young Artists Association to curate the senior award. Artists for this award are nominated by an independent nominator. The awarded artists are chosen by the curatorial of the Association.

The graduating students of the curatorial department at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts make an exhibition for the thirtieth Anniversary of the Gallery Liget. The Exhibition maps the past 30 years, presence, and possible future of the Gallery.
As the organisers of the exhibition, we would like to show the multiplicity of the artistic aspects, that, according to our mind, establish the function of the Gallery Liget. We pursue reflecting this tendency, therefore, as part of the project, we raised an open call for the exhibition. Before this, we make a talk with presentation about the exhibition and its focusses.

Children’s Room is a common project of Valéria Sass and Ádám Szabó’s class at the Sculptor Departement and the second year class at the Art Theory Department of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. We made connection with the scupltor class during the exhibition making practice. There did we become acquaintant with their works. Due to our observation, that a few of their works deal with childhood, we established the concept of the exhibition on some older works of the artists as well as on concepts like childhood environment, secrets, fears.
We made a request to the sculptor class at the Hugarian University of Fine Arts to reflect on the topic with their new works.
A three-part screening session is also connected to the exhibition, the aim of which is to introduce together with the starting of a dialogue. Invited presentators: (Dávid Gutema, Dávid Mikulán, Noémi Szabo, Zsuzsanna Tüske)
