Towards a New Bauhaus’ – The Exhibition of the Hungarian Design Cultural Foundation

– text / Ferenc SEBESTÉNY

The most recent exhibition of the Hungarian Design Cultural Foundation titled ‘Towards a New Bauhaus’ launched on november 26th, 2021 in the art gallery of FISE (Studio of Young Designers Association at 16 Kálmán Imre utca, District V., Budapest). The opening was followed by a roundtable seminar with the participation of the creators of the exhibition and invited guest speakers, sharing their viewpoints on the potentials of Hungarian engagement in the New European Bauhaus movement (NEB), and presenting and discussing professional and academic projects and events which comply with the objectives and principles of NEB. Our Foundation, a member of The Bureau of European Design Associations (BEDA) has taken an active role in the EU-initiated movement. The coordination of Hungarian participants and the harmonisation of their activities to the European process has been facilitated by the Hungarian Design Council (MFT). Showcasing works of textile, metal (jewelry), glass and ceramic art by Hungarian industrial artists, the exhibition and the subsequent roundtable seminar mark our place and contribution to the theoretic and creative processes of NEB. The exhibition was opened by the president of the Hungarian Design Cultural Foundation and curator of the event, Dr. Ferenc SEBESTÉNY, while art historian Dr. József SLÉZIA served as invited expert.
