BUDAPEST WINDOWS is an artistic urban-research project by Martin Frey and Hanna Schimek on the display windows of small shops and businesses. It is devoted to a medium of communication that all of us encounter every day and everywhere as we go through the city: the shop window, the display.
With exhibitions at three locations in Budapest this project seeks to provide a vivid impulse for the preservation and continued existence of small businesses, thus contributing to the diversity and vitality of the urban environment.
Martin Frey & Hanna Schimek (AT) in cooperation with Dekoratőr és Kirakatrendező Iskola (School for Decoration and Window Dressing) and students from the class of Eszter Sárkics, Miklós Erhardt, László Korga, János Sugár, Gruppo Tökmag (HU) and Victoria Square Project (Athens/GR).
