German-Hungarian artist Katharina Roters captured pictures of ornately decorated Hungarian houses-standard housing built around the 1920s often associated with post-war communist Hungary. Known as Kadar cubes-named after communist president János Kádá- these houses are typcically met with hostility and disregard by locals.
Decorated by their owners in a bid to add character in protest against the standardisation, these standard houses are considered relics of the past by the modern Hungarian society and are being torn down or renovated.
As such, Roters has photographed these visually appealing cubes for her book Hungarian Cubes to preserve the ideal of protesting against a communist government with asthetically pleasing results.
