Action Tableau of shaking hands, 1972. Work of art
Action Tableau of shaking hands during the Meeting of Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian artists, August 26–27, 1972, organized by László BekeAs the organizer of the event Meeting of Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian artists, László Beke intended to reflect on the possibilities of cooperation between artists from the three (at that time two) countries in the past and present, while examining and reconsidering the problems around the case of 1968, when Hungarian troops invaded Czechoslovakia in alliance with the Soviet Union. In addition to the handshakes of artists from different countries, which resulted in the tableau work documenting the meeting, the event included a tug of war action, which recalled the memories of 1968 by tearing up a photo showing the united forces playing tug of war after marching in the former Czechoslovakia in 1968; and an exhibition including a list of words which are similar in all three languages (Czech, Slovak, and Hungarian). Participants: Imre Bak, Peter Bartos, László Beke, Miklós Erdély, Stano Filko, György Galántai, Péter Halász, Béla Hap, Ágnes Háy, Tamás Hencze, György Jovánovics, J. H. Kocman, Péter Legéndy, János Major, László Méhes, Gyula Pauer, Vladjimir Popovic, Petr Stembera, Rudolf Sikora, Tamás Szentjóby, Anna Szeredi, Endre Tót, Péter Türk, Jiri Valoch.
