Every city has it’s past, present and hopefully a future, none of it could exist without the other. The nowaday face of Budapest wears it’s shadows. Besides the rightly famous and popular tourist attractions, there are places that are not included in the guidebooks, and now, we are in such a place. Csepel Island, the stronghold of the socialist planned economy, after the nationalisation of the former civic industry, factory sites and the associated slumming were built. After the collapse of the communist regime 1989-1990, this once thriving area was began to dive deep as never seen before. By the consequence of the industrial breakdown, thousands of families were ruined and have been deprived. The abandoned and looted factory sites became hideouts to the homeless and drug addicts.
In 1970-71 the Hip-Hop street culture, which began in America, reached Hungary in 1992-93. After scribbling earned the police „sympathy” the so called graffitists discovered these abandoned places sometimes alone, but rather in groups.Since that time, Hungary produced this culture of artists, many people’s identity is still not clear, the camouflage is their own.
