Vigadó and Kunsthalle reopened
After a period of three months of involuntary closure and with special regard to health safety precautions Vigadó, the centre of HAA has been reopened from 24 June 2020. In the past period the building itself and its exhibitions could only be visited in the form of online virtual walks. But from the day of the reopening the building and its exhibitions are again accessible to the general public.
Trianon exhibition of Marcell Jankovics
The exhibition is opened to the public and can be seen until 26 July.
The exhibition, which debuted in Székesfehérvár last year, is showing one of the most enduring and most mentioned historical tragedies in Hungarian history with a completely new approach of a caricatural and mocking manner. The graphic works take up the thread from the lost Battle of Mohács with the Turks in 1526 and depict all the major events that led to the Trianon Treaty.
America's British Culture in Hungarian
The book of Russel Kirk, the famous American political theorist, moralist, historian, social and literary critic, known for his influence on 20th-century American conservatism has been published for the first time in Hungarian by the Publishing House of HAA.
Respect for loyalty
In 2020 on the 100th anniversary of Trianon the Institute for National Strategy in Budapest has planned a representative series of exhibitions on the topic of belonging together with Forrás Gallery. Hundreds of well-known contemporary Hungarian artists have been asked to maked their works and send their artistic message proclaiming the memory, togetherness and the common future of the Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin and the world. Zoltán Bicskei (Magyarkanizsa), a regular member of HAA is going to take part with a short film of his in the exhibition series.
