HAA's delegation in Lower Austria

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 around Europe (Stuttgart, Berlin, Rome, Strasbourg, Budapest) and finally went to Weitra, Lower Austria in May, but the final ceremony took place on 27 October with the participation of HAA's delegation lead by President of HAA, György Vashegyi, who had held discussions with several Austrian cultural officials in Krems.
The exhibition 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 have evoked this historical and decisive event in the language of art. 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.
The exhibition in Weitra was a great success with more than 6,000 visitors attending the display in recent months, despite the changing epidemiological situation.
