Following the museum education classes of the previous season, Horizont Gallery continues its art educational programme in 2016. Horizont Talks – our lecture series starting in the second half of February – will look into some specific questions and territories of contemporary art. Instead of concentrating on a conjunctive topic, we asked the invited speakers to present and elaborate on an issue that is connected to their fields of research and recent experience.

The next edition of Horizont Talks will be Gábor ÉBLI's 'Contemporary Musem Map in the CEE region'


It is a common misbelief that museums in this region don’t give consideration for contemporary art. This pratice changed greatly since the fall of the Soviet regime. Not only national galleries, but smaller contemporary specialist museums also became involved with the collecting of contemporary art. However, it is a fact that their operation is controversial, loaded with financial or cultural policy related compromises. Our next lecture will give a snapshot of such issues.
Dealing with the aforementioned issues is the new book by Gábor Ébli - ‘Múzeummánia. Egy kulturális élménygyár európai modelljei’, published by L’Harmattan, will be available to purchase on the occasion of the lecture.

Date: June 4th, 2016. Saturday 4 pm
Entry: HUF 500

Important note: The lecture will be delivered in Hungarian.

Further speakers of Horizont Talks will be: Dávid Fehér - art historian at Musoum of Fine Arts, Áron Fenyvesi – Director of Trafó Gallery, Délia Vékony – Senior Lecturer at the International Business School Budapest, Judit Angel – Director of Tranzit.sk
