Glaswege is a word play. It refers to Martin Heidegger's The Holzwege, aus dem holzweg sein, which appeared in the 1950s of art theory issues, makes the process of cognition (episteme), reception (reception) similar to the discovery of secret paths in a dense forest.Éva Freund's one space, site-specific installation guides the visitors to the Magyar Műhely Gallery's  space divided by columns, and invites you to have a walk between nearly ninety large, embossed glass cluster fragment.

Glass fragments are also carriers - as the use of silicates from the beginning of human civilization to the present day is compounded by leaving traces and storage of information. The glass splinters, tipically as Freund's works, are supplemented with a separate verbal layer (the artist's poems and automatic writing inspired by the essence of posthuman philosophy). The floating clusters of the translucent fragments create loose paths through the settlement to create random paths in space, influenced by the light design of Tamás Herczeg. Thus the shadows cast and the sound design (Bálint Márk Túri, Bodnár Wajda Dávid) form an integral part of Éva Freund's composition.
