Magyar Modern

Magyar Modern

By Ralf Baumeister



Important artists of Hungarian Classical Modernism lived and worked temporarily on the Spree and were present in the Berlin avant-garde. The publication presents a brilliant overview of the close links between the culture of the Weimar Republic and the creative powers of Hungary, which ended with the seizure of power by the National Socialists. The city of Berlin has played a very special role in the history of Hungarian art and culture. Even before the First World War, the expanding metropolis provided artists with a stage for exhibitions in which they could present themselves within an international context. After the end of the political reshaping of Hungary through the Hungarian Soviet Republic and the victory of reactionary forces, from 1919 cosmopolitan Berlin became a place of creative freedom for Hungarian artists in exile. The result was a display of artistic fireworks that can now be explored in texts and images.
