The Pleasure of Light
György Kepes of Hungarian background and Frank J Malina of Czech parentage contributed greatly to the global interdisciplinary culture and had a decisive impact on twentieth century art, modifying its intellectual property and orientation. The joint exhibition of their works at the Ludwig Museum Budapest offers an outstanding opportunity for the viewer to gain insight into a segment of the last century's art history, which had a crucial influence on the current strategies of contemporary art.
Kepes and Malina's vision is best characterized by a distinct combination of aspiration and creativity expressed through experimentation and radical innovation. Guided by a prophetic insight they initiated and led environmental projects far in advance of today's global anxiety, They frequently collaborated with socially committed professional aiming for an international culture of peaceful cooperation. Among the influences shown in the exhibition the Hungarian born Laszlo Moholy Nagy and Nicholas Schafer are outstanding.
