About

The Pécs Workshop comprised of five Hungarian artists based in the cultural town of Pecs; Ferenc Lantos (1929 – 2004), Károly Halász (1946 - 2016), Károly Kismányoky (1943- 2018), Sándor Pinczehelyi (1946) and Kálmán Szijártó (1946).

A neo-avant-garde group that revived abstract neo-constructivist art as well as following the Bauhaus school’s conception of art. In the late 60s and early 70s they experimented with material, form and colour, working in different genres and techniques including enamel (the technique used in this exhibition) later moving on to Conceptual and more overtly political imagery. Deliberately pushing boundaries of art and political censorship this group of artists found diverse and inventive ways in which to express powerful messages in the face of the constrained social, cultural, and political reality of their time.

After remaining largely unknown outside Hungary, these ground-breaking artists are being recognised by international museums, biennials, and collectors.
