"I somehow happened to come across an English language periodical with a special issue on Czechoslovakia. It featured a fascinating photo of the unified troops, which had just marched into Czechoslovakia, lining up to play a game called “tug-of-war”, immediately before or after occupying a village. Thus, I organised a tableau vivant to this effect in Balatonboglár. The whole thing was put together in a very naïve manner, of course: instead of using a rope, Hungarian and Czechoslovakian artists, separated into two groups, played tug-of-war with the issue – this photo – of the aforementioned periodical. The story is a bit forced, as I suddenly realised that this was not only a political allusion but also, in some way, the magical annihilation of a photograph, while also being a scenario of a picture within a picture. It was similar to composing a tableau vivant for reconstructing an event for a historical painting. I had a great time coming up with this idea and, all in all, it is good that we did this."
