Bálint Mónika: The 20 Forint Operetta and three dimensions of participation (in HUNGARIAN)

The 20 Forint Operetta (inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s and Kurt Weill’s Dreigroschenoper) is a joint project of the Hungarian Pneuma Szöv. artist group and the German performance group Mobile Albania, in which a common space, a living open society of trust and cooperation is being created by artists, activists, „street experts” and inhabitants of Budapest. The paper presents an analysis of this long term art project based on participatory observations, articles, and interviews with the initiators of the project. The analysis of the 20 Forint Operetta discusses three possible interpretations of participation as it relates to participatory artwork – the three dimensions of participation.
