The catalog was published on the occasion of the group exhibition Abstract Hungary (6.24.2017 – 9.7.2017) and the solo exhibition Ábstract Hungary (6.19.2019 – 9.5.2019) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.
This extensive publication is dedicated to the Hungary’s art scene since the 1960s, and especially of its “abstract artists” and its penchant for abstraction when it comes to complex social conditions, a drive to effect change, and a resilience of analysis and representation. The abstracted visual language of Hungarian artists has been thematized by the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien in the exhibition Ábstract Hungary by Ákos Ezer, a painter who thematically processes the present-day reality in his home country. Already in the exhibition year 2017 the venue presented the group exhibition Abstract Hungary. A sweeping selection of twenty-four Hungarian artists who devoted themselves to methods of abstraction of varying dialogical nature.
