"Eight weeks. This is how long we followed the activities of contemporary Hungarian photographers in the virtual space during the pandemic.

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 region house
The building was owned by the ploughman Johann Lukas with the house next to it. It is not proven that the date on the façade 1829 is valid. The front fence however with the monolith stone pillars with the initials J.L seem like the work of masters of the olden times. continue
The museum building
We are accustomed to hearing the name of Lajos Áprily. The Lajos Áprily Public Education Association was established in 1990. The objective of the association is to preserve the memory of the poet, as well as supporting the preservation of local values and tourism. To do so, the association opened the Lajos Áprily Memorial House supported by locals while continuously collecting material for the local collection. continue
The building of the exhibition house
The building at 159 Lajos Street was documented as a Bear House at the beginning of the 18th century. It was rebuilt as a dwelling house at the end of the century and attachments were built to it in the 19th century. This building is the Exhibition House of the Budapest Gallery today where contemporary exhibition s are held regularly, as well as the exhibition of the sculptor Pátzay Pál and the Varga Imre Collection. continue

The Lace house
Lace sewing has a nearly 100-year-old tradition in this town. The Halas lace became a worthy competitor of the Brussels lace. It won the chief prize of several world exhibitions. During the last last 100 years many famous people received Halas lace as a gift of the Hungarian state. In 1996 Pope John Paul II, in 2000 the Japanese empress were also given this gift. continue
The building of the castle
The building served as a home for children from 1945 until its nationalization in 1996. The building of the castle was commissioned to Pollack Mihály (1773-1855), friend of the family, by the Count Festetics Antal (1764-1853). It was under construction from 1815 to 1819. The castle was surrounded by the most significant English garden of the country. continue
