Well, sort of…
As of February 2nd, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City has opened a new exhibition called “Seeing Red: Hungarian Revolutionary Posters, 1919.”
In the wake of the First World War many artists and writers were seized by a new sense of political purpose. It is widely recognized that the events of 1917 and after galvanized revolutionary aspirations among European avant-gardes and the intelligentsia.
This installation features posters by three of Hungary’s foremost graphic artists, Mihály Biró, Sándor Bortnyik and Bertalan Pór, all of whom had been actively involved in the Socialist revolutionary movement that culminated in the short-lived Hungarian Republic of Councils in 1919.
The exhibition is ongoing.
MOMA is located at 1153 West 53rd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) in NYC. For more information, check out the exhibition page on MOMA’s calendar.
