An unprecedented large-scale exhibition entitled Contemporary Art in Hungary takes places in Beijing, at NAMOC (National Art Museum of China). There are about 300 contemporary artworks in 8 halls including the works of László Fehér, Líviusz Gyulai, Bea Hauser, Mózes Incze, Lujos Kő, István Orosz, Győző Somogyi. Exhibition on view: between 14 June and 04 of July.  

In China I was asked to exhibit my anamorphic images (Anamorphic images are pictures that are distorted, and need to be viewed from a certain angle, or need to be viewed using a special mirror to appear correctly.) According to some art historians the idea of anamorphosis was developed in China and brought to Europe in the 16th century. Others state that anamorphoses were developed independently in China and Europe at the same time. It is improbable, but since the Chinese culture had a special relationship to the topic of mirror, it is at least probable that the Chinese artists were interested to learn from the European evangelizers the technique of the anamorphic distortion. It is true that during the 17th and 18th centuries the mirror anamorphosis was quite popular in China and it was used to distribute mainly erotic images. Hm:-) I have written more about it in the Hungarian blog
