Narratives of Uncertainty
A village can be defined in several ways. It can be an agricultural site, a form of settlement smaller than a town, a place with limited autonomy, or even a geographical term.
Perhaps what most distinguishes it from a town and other forms of settlements is a tight-knit community, shared history, cultural tradition, and deep sense of identity. In rural families, older generations passed on knowledge of farming, agriculture, and other rural activities to younger generations, as well as community values, village life and local culture.
In his ongoing project, Tóth explore how different generations relate to each other during this period of change, and he is looking for answers to the question of what exactly village, village identity, and place (home) means to his generation.
