Public Lecture in Vienna

Miklós Erdély. C.E.T.I. The wolf is coming!

Annamária Szőke: “Intermediality and Interdisciplinarity in the Work of the Hungarian Artist Miklós Erdély (1928–1986)”

Public lecture within the PATTERNS Lecture course: “The ‘second public sphere’ of the Hungarian avant-garde. Understanding space-constitutive media and performances in the counter-culture of the 1960s and 1970s” (Katalin Cseh, University of Vienna, Philological and Cultural Sciences, Theatre-, Film and Media Studies, Austria).

Guest lecturer Annamária Szőke is one of the few art historians who had close relations not only to the artists (of this period) themselves, but also to fundamental archived material. This material is the essential source to understand almost forgotten but extremely important moments of Hungarian respectively Eastern European Neo-Avant-Garde. Through her knowledge and by giving the students an insight into the Miklós Erdély Archive she encourages interest and provides a first access to unpublished material. Annamária Szőke is associate professor at the Institute of Art History, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary
