"To recall the life and works of Tibor Hajas is to commit trespass : disturb something which is definitely at rest, mutilate what is whole, classify that which is unclassifiable and, by labelling it as art, degrade what has for eternity become more than that. Hajas' achievement was surely unparalleled. Partly because - in contrast to so many other good artists - what he sought after from the start was absolute validity and irrevocability and partly because his works - despite their finite character - can still continue to give off flames which may easily scorch" (Laszlo Beke, Image Whipping - Tibor Hajas Photo Works with Janos Veto, Research Institute for Art History of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 2004).
