<nettime> Book Launch: PST (Public - Street - Tactical). The Public Art


   PST (Public - Street - Tactical). The Public Art Practice of Janos
   Sugar, published by tranzit. hu in Budapest, is launched on March 14,
   2017 in Budapest.

   Time: March 14, 2017, 7 pm

   Venue: Mayakovsky 102, the open office of tranzit. hu, 1068 Budapest,
   Kiraly utca 102.

   The book is presented by Beata Hock, cultural historian

   The Hungarian and English language book PST (Public - Street -
   Tactical). The Public Art Practice of Janos Sugar, published by
   tranzit. hu, endeavors, on the one hand, to contextualize Sugar's
   public art activity within an international framework, considering also
   local specificities. On the other hand, it looks at all of his
   initiatives that connect to the umbrella term PST, reinterpreting also
   such works from the 1980s as Fast Culture or the Persian Walk.

   The story of the book on the public art practice of Janos Sugar goes
   back to 2006, and even earlier, to 1993, to his Sztriptiz [Striptease]
   project. His plan to cast in bronze the graffiti Sztriptiz -spayed on
   the wall of a building in Budapest, most probably in the 1980s-was made
   first in 1993 for the exhibition Polyphony: Social Commentary in
   Contemporary Hungarian Art. After it fell through,
   Sugar's Sztriptiz project was the winner of tranzit. hu's open
   call Unrealized Art Projects in 2006. Yet, due again to the failed
   attempt to obtain the necessary permissions, the plan remained
   unrealized in the 2000s as well. After this, the idea of a book emerged
   that collects Sugar's works and projects, which-similarly
   to Sztriptiz-are made primarily not for an art public but the urban,
   public space.
