    Variants of the Petőfi Cult

    The exhibition seeks to address the issue of how the figure of Sándor Petőfi, “the poet” preserved in the national memory, has developed and changed over the past 170 years.

    The exhibition title is from the self-characterisation of his poem The Apostle: “... below the sombre brow / two smouldering eyes flicker / like two vagrant comets / which fear no one / but are feared by all. His gaze / soars always farther, always higher.”
