Budapest – Berlin: Dreams Come from the Past, Not the Future
Exhibition of young, contemporary art from Hungary in the Berlin Löwenpalais
№ 225/2018 from Sep 03, 2018
An exhibition of the works of young Hungarian artists was opened in the Löwenpalais in Berlin-Grunewald in cooperation with Freie Universität. The project was initiated by Prof. Dr. Klaus Siebenhaar at the Institute of German and Dutch Languages and Literatures, Freie Universität, and Dániel Ongjerth from the Budapest Eleven-Blokk Foundation. It is the prelude to a cultural exchange program between Berlin and Budapest. Entitled “Dreams Come From The Past, Not From The Future,” the exhibition features works by the artists Sári Ember, Patrícia Kaliczka, Kata Tranker, and Ádám Ulbert, which range between tradition and the present. It is being curated by the Budapest art historian Flóra Gadó and will be on display until September 23. Admission is free.
The exhibition of contemporary Hungarian art brings together works of diverse styles, materials, and forms of media: installations, paintings, works made of paper, and marble masks. They have in common the inherent idea that we must look to the dreams and visions of yesterday to gain a deeper understanding of the present and the future, says Prof. Dr. Klaus Siebenhaar.
The German-Hungarian art project is being supported by Prof. Dr. Klaus Siebenhaar from the Institute of German and Dutch Languages and Literatures at Freie Universität Berlin, the Eleven-Blokk Foundation, the Starke Foundation, the German Embassy in Budapest, and Night Mayor BUD.
