Nomad Park

On the site beside the horse court we set out to represent the history of the races of the Euro-Asian plains, and all this through archeological relics and ethnographic parallels. Before the Hungarian settlement Huns were one of the nomadic peoples of the region, who changed their life-style in the 10-11th centuries. This change could first of all be put down to the special geographic advantages of the Carpathian Basin. continue

Change of Pace

The exhibition is introduced by the post-1945 changes, works of art created in the spirit of progressiveness but at the same time linked to pre-war antecedents and testifying to a synthesis of styles that existed side by side and influenced each other (Expressionism, Constructivism, Surrealism, etc.). Visitors can see works from the 1950s: genre paintings, depictions of work and workers, and portraits in accordance with the dictatorship's arts policy of the day, these are stylistically homogeneous and follow the themes laid down at this time. In the next rooms there are works by a new generation.

Non-figurative trends existing in parallel appear as adaptations of Abstract Expressionism as well as of (Neo-)Geometrical, Structuralist and Organic endeavours. Figurative tendencies, versions of Pop Art and Hyperrealism, also significant at the time, are on view in the last section. On the corridor opening from the last row of rooms radical Avant-Garde works can be found primarily built on the use of photography, consisting largely of action documentations, and objects.

The walls of the fourteenth century chapel still stand, betraying evidence of several previous building operations. The church was once surrounded by a graveyard and several gravestones can still be seen. continue
