Balassi Institut – Collegium Hungaricum Wien
Fr 3.10.2014, 10am–6pm
Opening 02.10.2014 7pm
1989 was the magic year of the political turnaround in Eastern and Central Europe and also the opening of the Austrian-Hungarian border. But a lively exchange was already taking place between the people of Austria and Hungary in the years prior to this. The exhibition of the Collegium Hungaricum in Vienna transports you into the turbulent (pre-)turning point in Vienna and Budapest by showing objects, original documents, image and sound material from the worlds of advertising, shopping, fashion, home living and technology/communication. Some of the exhibits from various collections and archives are being shown for the first time and are brought to life with thrilling, personal memories (curator: Tibor Valuch).
