It is with great pleasure to announce that the preparations for the final exhibition of our bilateral project are in the finishing phase! The exhibition Architectural Encounters of Croatia and Hungary: Modalities of Professional Knowledge Exchange, 1900–1945 will showcase the synthesis of the extensive research conducted at the Institute of Art History in Zagreb and at the Hungarian Museum of Architecture and Monument Protection Documentation Centre in Budapest from 2021 to 2023. The exhibition panels will be presented in both Hungarian and Croatian language. The opening of the exhibition is expected to take place on 20th September 2023 at the Liszt Institute – Hungarian Cultural Centre in Zagreb, and at the Hungarian Museum of Architecture in Budapest at the beginning of October 2023.
Both Croatian and Hungarian research groups investigated ways of transferring knowledge based on study trips of architects and builders, professional journals, architectural and urban planning competitions, professional congresses and exhibitions. The research tasks were divided according to the profession and the results of previous research, and they jointly dealt with the relevant phenomena of the turn of the century and the period between the two world wars. Joint tours of buildings, libraries and archives on study trips to Zagreb, Rijeka and Budapest helped to define the key buildings and events, centres of knowledge transfer, which will be presented in this exhibition.
Stay tuned, as more information – and the exhibition invitation – is coming soon!
