Marcel Duchamp exhibited a commonplace object, a urinal, in 1917. He did not create a new work, but turned a ready-made into an aesthetic.

The interplay of thought and execution has been traced in his conceptual flavour ever since. Since process is equal to vision, documentation and the experimental use of photography play a major role.

Csaba Tóth, who has worked in commercial television for a decade and a half, has a growing contemporary collection built around choices where the artists use visual tricks, word games, questioning ‘reality’ and the media industry to disorient and make the viewer think.
