Visualizing Ideology: Art, Culture, and Politics in the Cold War Era

2nd conference organized by the Research Group of Critical Theories (led by Edit András and Sándor Hornyik) Institute of Art History, Research Center for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

After a quarter of a century, it is time to undermine the rigid duality of the ideologically charged official art and the autonomous, unofficial neo-avantgarde art. The conference aims to scrutinize the different ways of crossing ideological boundaries and the various forms of seemingly contradictory but actually overlapping artistic activities. The conference discusses the available theoretical frameworks to be applied for uncovering the ideological underpinnings of the Central and Eastern European neo-avantgarde in the time of socialism. The papers excavate the roots of its origins in the avant-garde culture and theory, and shed light on its connection to different visual cultures, i.e. socialist realism, abstract and surrealist art, pop art, etc.

Location:

Bartók Hall, Institute for Musicology, Táncsics Mihály u. 7, Budapest.

Time: May 15th Friday 9.30 am ‒ 13.00 pm

Keynote Speaker:

Tyrus Miller (University of California, Santa Cruz)

Lechner: International conference on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Ödön Lechner’s death

 
Ödön Lechner (1845–1914), one of the greatest representatives of Hungarian architecture, and certainly its most original, deserves a more prominent position in the international canon of extraordinary talents from the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This year, we commemorate the Centennial of his death, which even UNESCO honours on its list of international anniversaries. The Museum of Applied Arts and the Institute of Art History, Research Centre for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences have jointly organised an international, bilingual (English–Hungarian) conference and large exhibition for this occasion. The conference is an official event of the Festival of Hungarian Science in 2014. The two events will present Lechner’s highly important and original -but internationally little known - work to a Hungarian as well as an international audience. The rationale of the sections and the abstracts can be downloaded from here.
 
For the anniversary, the photographer of the Institute of Art History, Research Centre for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Péter Hámori, has made a set of photographs of Ödön Lechner’s works. (Photographs of the Museum of Applied Arts, Kecskemét City Hall and the hotel at Szekszárd are by József Sisa). For a selection of these pictures click herePhotographs can be used under the Attribution licence of Creative Commons.
