Revisiting the Hungarian Art of the 60s and 70s

This catalogue presents a comprehensive panorama of a two-decade period of Hungarian art that was hidden both from the international audience and from the art market in its own time.

35 of most important artists of a generation who started their careers in the 1960s are introduced.

The book presents the historical context these artists worked in, including the politico-cultural conditions, the local artistic traditions, and the international inspirations and correspondences.

The background unfolds and comes alive in the essays thanks to the interviews made by Hans Ulrich Obrist with seven major artist figures – Imre Bak, György Jovánovics, Ilona Keserü, Katalin Ladik, Dóra Maurer, Vera Molnár and István Nádler – of the period.
