Twenty-four artists from the Danube countries, including three Hungarians, are showcased at Kunst am Strom (‘Art by the Stream’), a major international exhibition opening in Hungary at the Pécs Gallery after Germany, Austria and Slovakia, the organizers told the state news agency MTI.
The exhibition, open until April 10 in Pécs, S Hungary, will give visitors a glimpse into the art scene in eight countries along the Danube – Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria.
According to the organizers, the exhibition features artists and writers looking for answers to the most pressing questions of our time, from climate catastrophe to pandemics and war. The Danube region has such a rich historical and artistic tradition that even these serious issues have generated exciting and artistically innovative responses from the region's artists.
The curators of each country have selected works from two or three artists, focusing on two generations: those who lived through the division of Europe and the Iron Curtain, and those much younger than themselves, born and raised in a united Europe.
The exhibition has close links with Pécs: the Hungarian curator is painter Péter Somody, professor at the University of Pécs Faculty of Art, who is also one of the Hungarian exhibitors, along with Sándor Imreh and Flóra Pertics.
The texts chosen for the works are mainly by authors who participated in the Pécs Writers' Program.
The Kunst am Strom exhibition will remain in Pécs until April 10, before moving to Zagreb, Timisoara, Novi Sad and finally Sofia.
