Wood, J and Harrison, P (2017) Westkunst - Ostkunst: a Selection from the Collection [group exhibition]. Ludwig Museum, Budapest, Hungary, 1 August 2017 - 31 December 2018.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Wood, J and Harrison, P
Abstract: Ludwig Museum in Budapest was founded in 1989. Its collection can be divided into two larger groups: one consisting of American and Western European artworks (pop art, photorealism, works by Die Neue Wilden) donated by the founders; the other incorporating works that ended up in the collection as a result of collecting activity starting in the 1990’s focusing on the art of former Socialist countries. The newly set collection display makes attempts to present emphatic points not only in well-organised chronological order or along stylistic features, but to examine the characteristics, consonances, differences as well as the artistic-cultural parallels between Western and Eastern art. The collection renders it possible to show up substantive parallelism within the lifeworks of artists with dedicated and critical approach from Western as well as Eastern countries.
