On October 10, the Swedish Academy announced that Peter Handke was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for 2019.

The members of Inconnu, one of the most prominent dissident artists’ groups of the 1980s, got involved in the emerging Hungarian environmentalist movement in the second half of the decade. This movement was primarily organized around the issue of the Gabčíkovo–Nagymaros Dams that was a joint project of the Czechoslovak and Hungarian states to build a large barrage project on the Danube that would profoundly shape the historical landscape of the river around Visegrád. The Inconnu groups’ focus on environmental issues was deeply related to their critique of the state-socialist regime.

Tibor Philipp was an active member of the Hungarian alternative opposition and the independent artist group Inconnu during the 1980s.
