An exhibition focusing on the art of the avant-garde in central Europe in 1908-1928 opened in the Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs, in southern Hungary, on Friday.
It presents through 150 titles the “dramatic transformation” of the art movement in sculpture, graphic design, photography, film scripting and printed journals during the period, mostly after WWI, the museum said in a statement.
The exhibition shows under one roof works by a number of prominent avant-garde artists from post-WWI central Europe including Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and the Serb-Croat-Slovene Kingdom.
It features Hungarian artists Lajos Kassák, Károly Kernstok, Ödön Márffy, László Moholy-Nagy, Lajos Tihanyi, Béla Uitz and Sándor Bortnyik. The artists from the CEE region include Bohumil Kubista, Josef Capek, Otto Gutfreund, Marcel Janco, Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz (Witkacy), Ljubomir Micic and Avgust Cernigoj.
The exhibition will run until the end of March 2020.
