Conceived in direct reference to the exhibition Daniel Bisig’s ’Pallarel’ installational video work The title of the exhibition (Was auch der Fall ist) comes from the second half of the first proposition in Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus,, broadening its meaning towards what exists beyond what exists, and also referring to the artist’s preceding exhibition of the same name.

The dossier exhibition of Tamás Konok to be showcased in one of the first floor halls of the Museum of Fine Arts’ Department of Art after 1800 responds to the ideas of the world famous German art historian, Hans Belting, on the end of art history. Professor Belting, whose works are seminally important both in Hungary and internationally, wrote the catalogue for the exhibition of sculptor György Jovánovics, which constituted the first of the ten dossier exhibitions organised thus far.
Fine art – literature - theatre
25 September 2014
10 works of fine art, 10 literary texts, 10 actors, 2 directors. The outcome: 5 scenes directed with two different approaches. The plays are intriguing as they are. Free association, dramaturgical knacks, secrets and mysteries in the spaces of the Museum of Fine Arts evocative of church interiors. With much humour and free of all pathos. All this brought under one roof, an unforgettable evening awaits visitors: sculptures and paintings seen through the eyes of writers and directors, revealing so far undiscovered, real and recontextualised meanings. One thing is certain: whoever comes to one of our evenings will never be able to look at the featured masterpieces in quite the same way again.
