Allegro Barbaro. Béla Bartók and Hungarian Modernity 1905 -1920

Continuing with events at the Musée d'Orsay on great figures in modern music – Mahler and Debussy - this exhibition will give the French public an opportunity to discover a particularly vibrant period in Hungarian cultural and artistic life, through Béla Bartók (1881-1945), the man and his music. In the early 20th century, musicians and painters in Hungary shared a desire to seek new forms of expression and a renewal with tradition. Breaking new ground within the European avant-garde, in just a few years they created their own distinctive idiom, a modernity imbued with the traditions of Hungary.

bartok modernity

With around one hundred paintings from public collections in Hungary and from private collections, including numerous documents relating to the young Bartók and to the musicians, composers, writers, poets, philosophers and psychoanalysts in his circle (musical scores, photographs, films, archive recordings, etc), the exhibition aims to revive this rich dialogue between music and the arts from early 20th century Hungary.

This exhibition takes place under the high patronage of Monsieur François Hollande, President of the French Republic, and János Áder, President of the Republic of Hungary.

Ephemeral Architecture in Central-Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries


The Research Centre for the Humanities, Institute of Art History, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, in cooperation with CentrArt Association - New Workshop for Art Historians, is organizing an international symposium entitled Ephemeral Architecture in Central-Eastern Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. This will be held in Budapest, 28-29th November, 2013.

It will focus on Central-Eastern Europe as a fluid geo-political conception and politically unstable territory with constantly shifting borders within the given timespan. Recognizing the growing interest in the latest research on ephemeral architecture, this conference will focus on temporary constructions erected for national and international exhibitions as a means of conveying ideas to an immediate audience. In this perspective the pavilion will be considered as a hub of architectural and artistic trends, political visions and cultural and social issues. Its complex political, cultural, social, economic and urban context will be analyzed: the exterior and interior design of an exhibition pavilion, along with its location within the exhibition park and neighboring edifices, its function as projecting regional, national or corporate representation.
 
After a long and sparsely documented history from ancient times to the 18th century ephemeral buildings appear in the course of 19th century architecture with new characteristics. Over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries ephemeral buildings have often offered the latest architectural solution for contemporary ideas, ideologies and trends. They were usually intended by architects to function as an autonomous experimental genre, providing new possibilities in terms of concept, planning, setting and display. They were also powerful means for nation building, mass entertainment as a new phenomenon, as well as they provided a "magic frame" for the latest achievements of the civilization in the 19th century. Later they were often appropriated and utilized by dictatorial regimes for their own needs; for demonstrations of power or, for performing the role of flagships of modernism. The research on ephemeral architecture calls into question the relationship between national/corporate buildings and their international critical reflections too. Papers also expected to address issues like the relationship between built-up environment of these temporary constructions and their perception, the reflection of their target audience.

The first conference in the series, entitled Progressive Tendencies in Ephemeral Architecture – Hungarian Case Studies was held in Budapest, on 29th January 2011, with a special focus on the Hungarian pavilion architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries. It raised questions concerning the link between architectural trends and national politics. The advanced aspect of a pavilion was analyzed as a primary architectural value in connection with national, regional and corporate policies.

The second conference aims to get together art historians, architectural historians and scholars from various academic disciplines (history, political history, history of design, anthropology, ethnography, cultural and visual studies) applying inter-disciplinary approach to the topic.
