A new exhibition can now be seen in the Holocaust Museum in the ninth district of Budapest. The exhibition is called “Belated Homecoming: Art in Exile.” The exhibition presents the work of significant artists and scientists of the 20th century Hungary who worked outside the country. Many of them had to leave the country due to their origin starting in the 1920s and 1930s.
Some of them became important figures of the Hungarian cultural and public life, however, some notable artists and their works are still unknown, waiting to be discovered. In its « Art in Exile » exhibition series the Holocaust Memorial Center is venturing to introduce these artists to the public thus differentiating the, often schematic, picture of the holocaust and providing a more personal view of the era.
