Len-in mania



Within the framework of a permanent exhibition, Hungary’s first Emlékpont, using the most up-to-date exhibiting techniques and museum teaching opportunities, brings to life, makes it possible to touch, and makes understandable for everyone the historical processes that affected Hódmezővásárhely and its residents during the past fifty years. Emlékpont will also be a memento, since it brings attention to the fact that those fifty years were not a dream: as we depart from them the weight of the lesson should not diminish. 

Date: 10/November/2018 - 24/February/2019

In our new exhibition at the Emlékpont, in Hódmezővásárhely, we exhibit the Lenin sculptures of surgeon Csaba Udvardy. After the change of the regime in 1989, the relics of the cult that lost its validity became the prime source of parafrace for pop-art, surrealism, neo-dada and the like. The rebuilt Lenin sculptures use the tools of the visual gags, applications, and word games built on our popular culture to translate the symbolism of the personal cult built by communism.
