Krisztina Szipőcs's guided walk in the exhibition Related by Sister Languages. Estonian-Hungarian Contepmorary Art Exhibition.

Language: Hungarian

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia, the exhibition Related by Sister Languages examines the points of intersection between Nordic, Baltic and Central-European history and experience in the present of the 21st century, where Estonia and Hungary are both building their futures within the bounds of the European Union. Can we draw a parallel between the themes and motifs that appear in the contemporary art of the two countries? How do they relate to the general problems of our time?

The majority of works exhibited at the present show of eight Estonian and six Hungarian artists and artist groups have been created in recent years, reflecting on current topics and are on display for the first time in Budapest. These are augmented by pieces selected from the museum’s collection, to further interpret and reflect on the questions raised by Estonian contemporary artists - our language sisters.
