Art Deco Budapest – Posters, Lifestyle & the City (1925-1938)

The exhibition Art Deco Budapest – Posters, Lifestyle & the City (1925-1938) at the Hungarian National Gallery gives a comprehensive picture of the characteristic visual culture of the period between the wars in the form of furniture, clothing, films and urban spaces, with the focus on Hungarian poster art and modern metropolitan life. Most of the more than 250 works of art are very rarely put on display, or even seen by the public before. Exhibits reflect everything that played a role in shaping public taste: the emergence of the new female ideal, the cult of modern fashion, sport and health, novelties such as cars, radio and talking films, and new forms of entertainment such as jazz concerts and revues.
