Eight Lessons on Emptiness with a Happy End
At Mücsarnok –
Kunsthalle Budapest (Műcsarnok in Hungarian, literally approx. Hall of Art, sometimes referred to as Palace of Art) is a contemporary art museum in Budapest, located in Heroes’ Square, facing the Museum of Fine Arts. It was built in 1895, by the plans of Albert Schickedanz and Fülöp Herczog, in eclectic–neoclassical style. As the greatest exhibition hall in Hungary, it exhibits representative works of art of Hungarian as well as other artists and it regularly organizes themed exhibitions.
Really great work of the SEDUCTIVE, FEARLESS, AND OUTRAGEOUS, MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ Her site with documentary film and also her book is worth checking out.
Her project got to my feelings -The Műcsarnok/Kunsthalle Budapest presents Marina Abramović’s video installation entitled Eight Lessons on Emptiness with a Happy End in Mélycsarnok, the exhibition hall’s new project gallery established this year 2012.
This work, made in 2008, addresses the topic of violence as it is portrayed in contemporary media.
