Hungary's chance to facilitate hope
From September, 2015
Over 2,000 immigrants packed Budapest's Keleti railway station this past Sunday night, a stark reminder of Europe's current immigration debacle.

I sat down with Anita to discuss her work back in 2015 here in Budapest. Since that time, she has indeed moved to New York and has been pursuing her Master's degree at the Pratt Institute for the past two years. On May 8th, 2017 Anita held her Inside-Out: MFA Thesis Show to conclude her studies at the Pratt, and you can read her Artist Statement and see more of the works from the show at the end of the article.
