    Trianon 100

    In Hungarian cultural consciousness Dezső Kosztolányi’s novel Anna Édes is one of the most well-known literary works which are set in the apocalyptical period of a century ago. It takes place from the collapse of the 1919 Commune to the autumn of 1922 when “Truncated Hungary was admitted to the League of Nations”.

    Writers and Artists in Aladár Székely’s Studio

    The title of this exhibition presenting the oeuvre of photographer Székely Aladár (1870-1940) who was born 150 years ago, cites the poet Endre Ady’s ground-breaking poem published in 1906. The photographer, already living in the capital, meets Ady and the representatives of modern literature, and visits exhibitions and artists’ colonies with a sensitivity to the arts. He sets off on a study tour abroad. He primarily goes to visit progressive German studios and what he sees and feels resonates with the enthusiasm for “new horizons” and “new desires” of Ady’s poem.
