An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War

George Legrady: An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War (stories I)

An installation work and CD-ROM publication that addresses the archive as multi-linear narrative and the intersection of personal and official documents in Stalinist Hungary. Over 60 stories and objects in the artist's possession are classified according to the floorplan of the former Hungarian Communist propaganda museum.

An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War is George Legrady's private archive of memories, stories, images, home-movies and relics relating to his family's emigration from Hungary to Canada in the 1950s.
