Exciting news! The PEN American Center will host a Solidarity with Hungary event featuring some of Hungary’s leading philosophers, artists and intellectuals in New York City.  (Additionally, Hungarian WATCH has been asked to participate!)

When: Tuesday, April 26
Where: Greenwich House Music School, Renee Weiler Concert Hall, 46 Barrow St., New York City
What time: 5 p.m.

With Kornél Mundruczó, Béla Pintér, G.M. Tamas, and others.
Moderated by Alisa Solomon.

Free and open to the public. No reservations required.

Co-presented by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, CUNY Graduate School, and Center for International Theatre Development.  Supported by the Trust for Mutual Understanding


In the wake of sweeping “reforms” and crack-downs brought on by the last election in Hungary, the country’s artists, journalists, and intellectuals are facing a period of intense scrutiny and censorship. Contemporary political philosopher G.M Tamas, theater and film director Kornél Mundruczó, and playwright/actor/director Béla Pintér (via Skype) will discuss the current situation for the Hungarian creative community.
