Exhibition of HAA in Strasbourg

The unique and large-scale fine art exhibition of HAA – which first opened on 5 July 2019 with the title Verstrichene Zeit – Elapsing Time in the Museum of Modern Arts in Passau (Museum Moderner Kunst), then travelled to Stuttgart in October 2019 and to Berlin in December 2019 as well as to Rome this autumn – can now be seen in Strasbourg from 19 October. The display can be seen until 9 November in the museum of Lieu d'Europe.
The display is in connection with the Hungarian memorial year of the political and economic change 30 years ago, i.e. the end of the Communist era. The academicians of HAA evoke this historical and decisive event in the language of art as an important station of the German-Hungarian relations as well. The exhibition, whose concept was worked out by two curators, Péter Stefanovits and László Alapfy, comprises of the works of 23 internationally acclaimed Hungarian artists, such as painter György Szemadám, sculptor Ádám Farkas and graphic artist István Orosz. All the works have been inspired by the opening of the borders in 1989.
Another reason for the exhibition is that Hungary has been a member state of the Strasbourg based Council of Europe for thirty years.
