The programme and exhibition event titled EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY begins with the sound recordings of 2018 TEDx lectures played in the front garden but the recordings can already be heard when you sit down on the benches in the street. To the right of the main entrance, in the front cellar, visitors can view documents about the banned Hungarian Avant-garde artists in Balatonboglár in the 1960s and 1970s.

Walking on from here, you can easily reach those object sculptures from the 1970s and 1980s (made by György Galántai), which form a conceptual kinship with the exhibition of cultic tools in the covered courtyard.

In the back garden you can see György Galántai’s latest monumental banners titled “EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY”, the original Day/Sun idea [in Hungarian the two words are identical] and motif were inspired by John Cage’s quoted line in 1971. Finally, in the PSYCHO CINEMA in the shed, you can watch videos of the presentations of psychologist Péter Popper from his Master Course series from the 2000s; the various videos are screened every day.

The sound sets in Area 51 (at 13 venues) connect the small spaces contextually and specific to the different places, while guiding visitors from one venue to the next, lifting them out of the cavalcade of the festival.
You can find more information and interesting things in the book cabinet of the ISBN book+gallery in the covered courtyard, while you can have your T-shirt printed with the Area 51 sign for free in the gazebo this year too.
GALÁNTAI HOUSE | KAPOLCS, KOSSUTH U. 55., Open from 10 am to 6 pm
The title of the exhibition is:
WHAT IS GIVEN A NAME EXISTS;
in other words, what wants to exist and is possible will become what
it wants to become by naming itself, therefore it exists.
