Design in Nutrition. The Beginnings - 1980



At the very end of the 70’s, beginning of the 80’s, Károly Szalóky, together with Miklós Kádár, organised in the university club of the Castle district (Budapest) a series of events entitled „Vártárlat” („Castle show”) in order to „visually cultivate” the young generation, and of course to divert themselves. The club was to be found in the building once seat of the Financial Ministry, at that time building of the „Castle Club”, today of the Hotel Kulturinnov (Szentháromság tér). It was – thanks to the given concerts and organised events – one of the most visited place at that time amongst the youngsters. The shows organised by Szalóky and Kádár presented an opportunity for artists - whose art was close in its notions to the organizers’ conception (Bodóczky, Birkás etc.) – to exhibit. The finissage event of the year 1980 was entitled Design in Nutrition. A particular performance was to be presented at the opening, of which only the members of the music band Fonográf and some insiders were informed. On 20th December 1980, at 7 p.m. Károly Szalóky stood upon the podium, facing the audience which did not suspect anything, to tell his solemn speech, but at that very moment something began… The next pictures, made by Gábor Ferenczy document the first steps of a gallerist.
