Last month of the Years of Disarray exhibition

The international traveling exhibition ’Years of Disarray 1908–1928. Avant-gardes in the Cetral Europe’ will close its gates soon. The best of the Central European avant-garde can be admired by visitors of the Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs until 31st March 2020.

Olomouc, Cracow, Bratislava and Pécs – four cities connected with a common exhibition project mapping the avant-garde art from Central Europe in the rapidly changing period of 1908 to 1928. The unique exhibition was first presented to the public at the Olomouc Museum of Art in September 2018. The exhibition then travelled to the International Cultural Centre in Krakow and the Bratislava City Gallery. Its fourth and also last stop is the Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs.


Although the basic concept of the exhibition does not change, the appearance of the exhibition is always adjusted to the environment in which it is presented at the moment. The installation of each exhibition rerun is altered to stress specifics of artistic situation it is capturing. The visitors of the Hungarian rerun have once again a possibility to admire various exhibits – paintings, sculptures, prints and works of typography, magazines, film scripts or photographical experiments. Janus Pannonius Museum focuses their presentation more on Hungarian artists and offers more than 150 exhibits borrowed from 24 national and international collections.
