The dig within the Jewish quarter, Budapest (HU)


Displaced Stone
40cm x 30cm x 25cm circa.


‘Displaced Stone’ is a precarious monument in memory of the victims of all persecutions.
A big stone, found in a dig within the Budapest’s Jewish quarter, was manually moved and placed in the garden of Klauzál tér (Klauzal Square). As in many memorials, this stone represents the memory value. In addition, the performative act of disinterring, lifting and carrying the weight through the streets of the Jewish district, emphasises this historic moment of rise of hungarian nationalism.
