"Listen here, a few years ago I became so depressed by daily politics that I decided to leave. It effected our day-to-day life and was really awful. Even the greengrocer looked at my like I was carrying a machine gun when I entered the store. Everyone was so uptight that it became unbearable. No prospects whatsoever."

"Fiction seems completely loosened from reality but Loser cleverly poises all along; but not only these, but between yesterday and today, the private and communal, individual and social. (…) And whilst we bitterly laugh at the scenes of a night that’s based on fragments, which outline the contemporary Hungarian reality, Schilling doesn’t let us forget about his own story. Moreover, with his interpolations, silent or active presence he derails and guides the viewers’ attention to new meanings." - Jászay Tamás, Revizoronline
Krétakör (Chalk Circle) is a contemporary art production agency that produces creative community games by relying on the experiences of social sciences.
It is creative, since it approaches social issues and problems in a creative and innovative manner; mediates knowledge to participants and makes them active and encourages them to make decisions.
It builds on the community by viewing partners and participants as cooperating agents; is adamant about strengthening civil society self-determination and supporting initiatives taking a bottom-up approach.
It is a game, since it describes the event to be created with the terminology used in games, in other words, considers empirical experience exchange as the only single constructive pedagogical and socialisation method.
