János Baksa Soós, born 1948 in Budapest, emigrated to Germany in 1971, where he lived and worked until his death in 2021.The extremely rich artistic and musical legacy he created during this time period it is still being explored.
Prince January (János Baksa Soós) always said goodbye to his past.
Even in this exhibition we can see such a retrospect: one is looking back, from the late 70s, at the former self; including the period as lead singer of the hungarian underground pop-group “Kex”.
“Of course we arrive with a completed result,
which is a take-off speed, up to a certain age.
Then the work’s pursuing results follow,
after re-understanding the old ones. ”
