THE HUNGARIAN GUGGENHEIM
The Hungarian Guggenheim is based on a fiction: an ideal Guggenheim satellite, the Hungarian Guggenheim is appearing in Budapest. The question asked about the apparition is: how it takes shape in today’s Hungary?
The project consisted of three-stage method. First of all, art theory students as the next generation of museum professionals, filled out a questionnaire and outlined the parameters of the ideal institution. A group of hungarian theorists were asked for the second stage of the project to synthesize the results of these questionnaires and develop a more specific picture of the ideal institution.
In the third step, the students of three different universities examined the effects of the fictitious institution from four basic angles: institutional system, architecture, communications, and economic impacts. The various aspects were analyzed by the students of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics as project tasks. The results were shared with each other at regular intervals, and aware of the developments they continued to work. The exhibition will represent unique works of art, visual plans, architectural models and infographics, which visualize a fictitious institution and display the impacts on the immediate and wider environment.
