Janus Pannonius Museum launches the third rerun of the Years of Disarray exhibition

Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and now Hungary – four countries and four stops of the exhibition ‘Years of Disarray 1908–1928. Avant-gardes in the Central Europe’. On Friday, December 13, 2019 the ceremonial opening of the last exhibition rerun will take place in Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs. The character of the exhibition will be altered again. This time it will not be that large, but more enriched by artworks of Hungarian artists.

Once more, the Hungarian rerun of the exhibition will present in twelve chapters a period of dramatic changes in the development of modern art and avant-gardes in the Central Europe between years 1908–1928. In Pécs, the installation will be more focused on Hungarian artists. Thus visitors will have a possibility to admire various exhibits – paintings, sculptures, prints, works of typography, magazines, film scripts or photographical experiments.


The ‘Years of Disarray 1908–1928’ exhibition and the whole idea of the ArtCoMe project – the international educational programme for high school students creates a vital part of it – was introduced for the first time in Olomouc Museum of Art (CZE). In Czech Republic, the exhibition took place from September 2018 to January 2019. During this period, it was attended by over 13,000 visitors. In addition, the exhibition won the Public Award of Olomouc Region for an outstanding achievement in the field of culture (2nd place) and above all it won the competition of the Czech Association of Museums and Galleries – Gloria Musaealis and became the best Czech exhibition of 2018.
