We would like to present the part of „Pop”-art in Hungarian aspect.  We present works from 70’s, 80’s, 90’s ages to these days to involve works of today’s generation.

Questions of the exhibition: the effect and after-effect of Pop-art, and its survival. Has got everybody a pop picture? Is the Pop eternal?

In the 60’s, the Hungarian Pop-art shows a completely different iconography because of its political and economical environment than the Western Pop.

Nowadays, the Pop and the populism has a similar characteristic in the Eastern Europe areas as well as the American Pop has had it before. The American Pop has used the popular culture and the banal phenomenon of  everyday life as motives on their works, while the Hungarian Pop-art has focused on internal questions of art with political attitude. The economic and political baseline of Eastern areas followed the Western society. So, have these brought changes in the Hungarian Pop-art?

Exhibition on view till August 18th.
