On March 22, 2023, the exhibition PETŐFI FOR ALL SEASONS: Political Changes in the Petőfi Cult between 1942 and 1956, organized to mark the 200th anniversary of the poet’s birth, opened at the Blinken OSA Archivum.
From mid-March to the end of May, the Archivum’s program series entitled PETŐFI MIRAGES is not about Petőfi’s life and art, but about the history of Petőfi’s memory and its various aspects. We have been chasing Petőfi’s mirage for 176 years. A series of events, including film screenings, theater performances, readings, and talks, will offer insights into this history.
Venue: Blinken OSA Archivum, Centrális Galéria
1051 Budapest, Arany János u. 32.
The events are open to the public and participation is free, but registration is required.
