The Berlinische Galerie, one of the most prestigious museums in the German capital, is presenting its Hungarian Modern exhibition with a guided tour in Hungarian.
The museum, which specializes in collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary art from Berlin, is offering a guided tour in Hungarian for the first time. On 18 December, visitors will be able to learn about the work of Hungarian artists in Berlin in the 1910s and 1920s, including which famous Berlin buildings were designed by Hungarian architects. The guided tour will be repeated three times, twice in January and once in early February.
After four years of preparation, the Berlinische Galerie opened its exhibition Magyar Modern – Ungarische Kunst in Berlin 1910-1933 (Hungarian Art in Berlin 1910-1933) in early November,
the largest exhibition of Hungarian art in Germany in more than three decades since the fall of communism.
Featuring more than 200 paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, posters and other works of art, the exhibition shows how Hungarian artists from among the largest communities of foreign artists working in Berlin contributed to the thriving cosmopolitan culture of the capital of the Weimar Republic.
The exhibition, which includes works by Aurél Bernáth, Béni Ferenczy, Lajos Kassák, László Moholy-Nagy and József Rippl-Rónai. The exhibition, which will be open until 6 February, consists of nine sections, highlighting, for example, the work of Hungarian photojournalists working in the uniquely diverse German press of the period.
