Conversation with ethnographic researcher Törő Balázs on his project documenting fences and gates of Lake Balaton summer homes built in the 1960s and 1970s. For the most part these gates and fences were made by local craftsmen or the owners themselves. Törő Balázs is a native of Balatonakali on the northern shore of Lake Balaton. He works at the Laczkó Dezső Museum in Veszprém. He has also done research on Balaton summer communities and on the colonies of small family vineyards located on the outskirts of the villages. There is an exhibition of photographs from his fence/gate project in the waiting room of the Révfülöp train station. The exhibit opened on October 1st, 2021. Interview by Grozdits Károly.
