This photo by András Bánkuti (1958 –) was taken during the First National Meeting of a new party that was formed in 1989 and went on to win the elections next year. Their meeting was held in the foyer of the Budapest University of Economics, previously called Marx University. As the university did not want to remove the statue (it is still there, the name is now Corvinus), they covered it.
