The Queen of Gymnastics Agnes Keleti turned 100 years on Saturday, January, 9.

Agnes Keleti was a headline celebrated to her 100th birthday on Saturday, January, 9, in the media not just in her native Budapest Hungary but around the world. She is the oldest living Olympic champion. Was a Holocaust survivor and winner of 10 Olympic medals in gymnastics … including five golds.

Keleti went through very hard and exciting chapters of her life … achievements, adventures, tragedies and perseverances, as she said, passed away in a flash of lightning. Also added Q.: “These 100 years felt to me like 60 yrs.”. When asked her what is the receipt to a long Life she answered Q.” Never look into the mirrow”. As always she also has kept her great sence of humor.

Agnes Keleti, was born Agnes Klein in 1921, had her illustrious career interrupted by World War II and the subsequent cancellation of the 1940 and 1944 Olympics. Forced off her gymnastics goup in 1941 because of her Jewish ancestry, Keleti went into hiding in the Hungarian countryside where she survived the Holocaust by assuming a false identity and working as a maid. Her mother and sister survived the war with the help of famed Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, but her father and other relatives perished at Auschwitz, among the more than half a million Hungarian Jews killed in Nazi death camps and by Hungarian Nazi collaborators.

Resuming her career after the war, Keleti said her main goal was to travel around the world in the first place cause she always loved travel to different countries cause in those days was not an easy thing to have a passport, to leave Hungary and then came Q.” “I loved gymnastics because it was possible to travel for free.”

Also said during the interview how much adors traveling saying, the experiences gained while traveling the world were more precious than her 10 Olympic medals. Still today she would travel-and-travel but the pandemic rules the world but still hope when it will leave she will take off to explore additional landscapes.

In 1948 was set to compete at the 1948 London Olympics but a last-minute ankle injury dashed her hopes. Four years later, she made her Olympic debut at the 1952 Helsinki Games at the age of 31, winning a gold medal in the floor exercise as well as a silver and two bronzes.

Despite her achievements — with six medals she was the most successful athlete at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics and she is recognized as one of the most successful Jewish Olympic athletes of all time — the still-vivacious Keleti said she most values her health and the simple fact that she has lived. On the eve of her birthday Q.: “I live well, and it’s great that I’m still healthy, And I love life, Health is the essence. Without it, there is nothing.”

Those travels would ultimately result in a nearly 60-year absence from her native Hungary. At the age of 35, while she was becoming the oldest gold medalist in gymnastics history in Melbourne, the Soviet Union invaded Hungary following an unsuccessful anti-Soviet uprising.

Keleti remained in Australia and sought political asylum. She then immigrated to Israel the following year and worked as a trainer and coached the Israeli Olympic gymnastics team until the 1990s.

After leaving Hungary for the Olympics in 1956, she visited her native country only once before returning to Budapest in 2015.

Keleti was awarded the Israel Prize in 2017 — considered that country’s highest cultural honor — and is the recipient of numerous other prestigious awards, including being named one of Hungary’s “Athletes of the Nation” in 2004. She holds individual gold medals in the floor exercise, balance beam and uneven bars.

Starting this year, Israel’s championship for artistic gymnastics for women will bear the name of appraised Jewish Olympic gymnast Ágnes Keleti in honor of her upcoming 100th birthday celebrated on January 9. Agnes Keleti remains the most successful Jewish female athlete ever in Olympic history.

As said in the media, today, Keleti follows her doctor’s recent advice to avoid performing full leg splits, and her near-perpetual smile and infectious laughter are reminders that even in times of great hardship, there remains the immutable potential for perseverance and the joy of life.

Just in Time … Traditional Hungarian Scone with Pork or Goose Cracklings  – Sertés vagy Liba Tepertős Pogácsa

The cake is one of the oldest and most popular baked goods in the Hungarian-inhabited areas, but also in many other nations. The origin of the name is derived from the Latin word focus – fire. Although at first its sound not similar to that used in Hungaria, but when we think of the fried dough of Italian bakeries – the Latin focacea – it sounds more familiar. To this day, Italians call focaccia the flatter, smaller variety of bread. The Hungarian language took the name South Slavic pogača (which originally meant pie). In most European countries, “cake” baking sounds familiar. “Pogatschen” for the Germans, “poğaça” for the Turks,”hogaza” for the Spanish, and “fougasse” for the French.

From time travel, let’s just jump back to the present … Hungarians make typical cakes for the coming Xmas feasts, but the Pogács – Scone is popular to bake anytime throughout the 365 days of the year.  It is also a national yummy with wide spread of stuffings. There are so many varieties of  fillings of the “Pogácsa” – “Scone” with different flavors such as: cheese, potato, goose cracklings, sour cream, cottage cheese, sheep’s cheese, crumbly, cabbage, butter, different seeds, onion, green spice, and of course there can be different variations of them, regardless of the variety. In addition to the traditional flavors, may  find at different regions different fillings …  broccoli, chili, wild onion (especially in the town Orfű), bean (City of Sopron).

After a hearty heavy soup …  let’s say the “goulash soup” Scone with Pork or Goose chopped cracklings Tepertős Pogácsa is really heavenly!

Here is a reminder to the Gyulás heavy soup receipt: https://rollinginbudapest.com/2020/05/06/a-1000-year-history-cuisine-of-hungary/ along another receipt of beloved chesse scone – sajtós pogácsa.

Receipt to the Traditional Hungarian Scone Pork or Goose cracklings  –  Sertés vagy Liba Tepertős pogácsa

Preparation time cca. 2 hours. Cooking time ½ an hour up 1 hour.

Ingredients: 60ml /4 tbsp milk, 1 tsp dried yeast, 250g pork or goose chopped cracklings, 500g plain flour – plus extra for dusting, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp salt, 2 tbsp grated parmesan or as taste, 1 tbsp caraway seeds, 120g unsalted butter, 120 ml soured cream,  2 eggs beaten, to cover the scone with beaten egg and a drop of water, to glaze.

Preparation: Gently heat the milk in a pan until it is lukewarm, then pour it into a jug and stir in the yeast. Leave it for 15 mins or so to get working and froth up. Meanwhile, heat a heavy-based pan with the already fried craklings a bits until crisp and golden. Remove them from the pan and leave to cool. Sift the flour into a bowl and mix with the baking powder and salt. Stir in the parmesan or other cheese and caraway seeds. Put the butter in a small pan over a gentle heat and allow it to melt until it is just liquid. Take the pan off the heat, stir in the soured cream and add the beaten eggs – make sure the butter isn’t too hot or the eggs will scramble. Add the cooled crispy cracklings and stir in the yeasty milk. Pour the buttery egg and chopped mixture into a large bowl, then add the flour and other dry ingredients, for a short time, until everything is combined. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 mins or so until elastic. You can do this with a mixer and a dough hook as you like.

5th ArteKino Festival – December, 1-31. 2020.

During the Convid-19 Pandemic effect, not being able to go and sit enjoying movies at the cinemas therefore an attempt was made by the ArteKino organisers to make this year’s selection reachable in watch at home even more colorful selectionof moves than before. The organizers welcome cinema fans to make these hard times easier with online screenings of documentaries that mix with fiction and various combinations of these. Drama taps into comedy and then hyperrealism. We see European conflicts through the eyes of young filmmakers, with a new approach, overwhelming empathy and parade dramaturgy. Cat in the Wall is one of my favorite but also warmly recommended films for Ivana the Terrible, Son of Sofia, and Motherland. The film screened in original language with English/Hungarian subtitles.

Movies are available for free from December, 1-31. 2020 between the following link, after a quick registration: https://www.artekinofestival.com

Since it was first launched, ARTE has always championed a shared foundation of European cultural values by placing imagination and pluralism at the heart of its project. This European ideal pervades all its programmes and, thanks to digital technology, the channel is now able to share it with more and more Europeans. A genuine cultural policy cannot be the sole preserve of “those in the know”, it only makes sense if it is open to everyone, especially those who have no access to culture or may feel excluded.This is why ARTE is keen to address audiences where they are most likely to be found – on digital networks. The ArteKino festival, launched in 2016, is symbolic of ARTE’s ambition to promote the riches of European arthouse cinema and share them with as many people as possible.

For its fifth edition ArteKino Festival is showing a selection of 10 European films that have been made by young filmmakers, and which are freely available in 10 languages in 45 countries across Europe. Our aim is to create new links between works, their creators and a large audience that is keen to discover new and relevant views on contemporary concerns and themes. In an everchanging landscape, these films, fictions and documentaries offer a lens through which we can see our world, and decipher our link with history.

The ten feature length films, made by creators from ten different countries, pay homage to the cultural and linguistic diversity found across Europe. Our selection highlights new creators and their diverse sources of inspiration, along with how they address geopolitical changes and intimate crises. Being either documentaries or fiction, or blending the borders between the two, these films offer a range of views, from melancholic to cheerful, of a transforming world.

Established by the ArteKino Foundation, the festival has benefited from the support of Europe Media Créative as well as private sponsors. The ArteKino Foundation also supports feature length projects through the “ArteKino International Prize”, a bursary to help with their development, which has been awarded at a dozen large film festivals. Also, through “ArteKino Selection” a film or series is made freely available on ARTE’s three digital cinemas: artekinofestival.com, arte.tv, and the YouTube channel ARTE Cinéma.

Author’s evening of Katalin Szlukovényi @ Budapest

Bodó Gallery and Auction House – Literary evening

November, 12. 2020. 7 p.m.

District, V., 24-26 Falk Miksa Str. Budapest

Katalin Szlukovényi (1977, Győr) Déry Tibor Prize winner, Radnóti Prize winner and Attila Gérecz Prize winner, as well as poet, translator, university lecturer and editor who received scholarships from Zsigmond Móricz and Mihály Babits. She graduated from ELTE BTK and Eötvös József Collegium with a degree in Hungarian-English, and then obtained a PhD degree at ELTE. She translates from English, German and French, mainly poems. Between 2017 and 2020, she was the literary editor of Móra  Publisher (Könyvkiadó). From 2018 she is an assistant professor at the Department of English Studies of Eötvös Loránd University.

She is the author of the monograph The Doubters: Irony, Self-Irony, and Humor in Twentieth-Century Jewish American Prose. Her latest volume of poems, Dream Kitchen, was published in 2020 for Poetry Day at “Jelenkor” Publishing House. Previous volumes of poetry: Experimental Rabbit Nose (2005), False Nostalgia (2013).

“The poetry of Katalin Szlukovényi creates an intimate closeness. She often begins his poems almost comfortably with ordinary situations, and then, with the next movement, sees the absurd, amusing, or ominous signs in them, and from there moves on to the unpredictable ending. “We talked about marriage on the study trail / fifth core leading to the Badacsony lookout tower”. Little is said of what the hikers said, but the exact geological description of the landscape suddenly begins to speak of the subsurface strata of human relationships. This bold polyphony requires exceptional technical knowledge. It is worth paying attention to the diversity of forms, the bold changes of style layers, the poetic references, the sure sense of proportion. But you need something more: playfulness and serenity that permeates every line of the volume. In the poems of the Dream Kitchen, a brilliant voice is completed, ”wrote Győző Ferencz about the volume Dream Kitchen.

The event was supported by the Ministry of Human Resources.

Admission is free. Due to the limited capacity of the gallery, please indicate your intention to participate by sending an email to info@artanzix.com.
