The Palace of Art will honour the occasion by hosting a monumental jubilee exhibition, with retrospective and contemporary sections alike. The Lajos Vajda Studio earned a special place among the neo-avant-garde art groups of Hungary: a neo-romantic passion and the cult of individuality, daring spontaneity coupled with an improvising spirit, scandals with neo-Dadaist reminiscences and the rock-new-wave culture have all formed part of their art, along with the re-thinking of the progressive traditions of Szentendre and the application of surrealist, expressionist, constructionist and neo-primitive methods of creation. Their worldview and artistic work are simultaneously characterized by visual and conceptual absurdity, a sensitivity for social grotesque and irony and the use of creative survival techniques and attitudes. Since its foundation, the Lajos Vajda Studio took part in countless international and Hungarian exhibitions; it organized numerous concerts, actions and performances, and also produced records and made several successful movies. Works by its artists have been purchased by several museums as well as a growing circle of private collectors. The compositions of 46 artists will be shown at the Palace of Art´s exhibition, based on a consistently thought-through historical and analytical concept, with the artworks, the manifestoes and the selected documents of thirty years arranged in chronological order, focusing on the main iconographical and conceptual nodal points.
