The beer is not from yesterday: at the bottom of a Sudan, nearly seven-thousand-year-old vessel people already found a few drops of beer. The ancient Egyptians aromatized the beer with date, they sucked out with straw from stone jar, and they consumed it as a liquid, preserved bread. The Babylonian put into the beer honey and fruit juice, its quality was writing upon the stone of Code of Hammurabi. But the monks of monasteries brew beer in order to ease the fasting, because it was not prohibit to drink during fasting. Hrabal spent his childhood in breweries, and he became one of the best-known Czech writer.

Laczkó Dezső Múzeum invites you to the guest exhibition called “Beyond the planet, above the Earth – The Little Prince” into Laczkó Dezső Múzeum. A new temporary exhibition in Laczkó Dezső Múzeum More Shorter
Beyond the planet, above the Earth – The Little Prince
Site: Veszprém, Erzsébet sétány 1.
Can be visited: 29.09.2017 – 04.03.2018
The Little Prince exhibition was a cherished dream of Móra Ferenc Múzeum in Szeged
through long years, which came true in 2015. The purchasing of the lithograph prints that the
author himself, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry created meant the formation of the art exhibition.
These are the cultic illustrations that appear in our mind when we think of the Little Prince.
We may meet the main character himself on the prints, but the Rose, the fox, the different
planets and the most exciting stories of the novel appear, as well.
The aim of the museum of Szeged with the formation of the exhibition was to present the
legendary novel primarily for the children in an exciting way and in a more modern form. The
installations of the art exhibition, which can be tried (the volcano, the sunset, the swing, the
thorns of the rose garden, or the journeys of Saint-Exupéry) serves the aim to make children
be the participants of the story from kindergarten to high school. Furthermore, it was the aim
of the creators to make the visuals amazing for adults, as well, so they can live through the
story again that they have read in their childhood.
The introductory part emphasizes the universality of the novel with the great number of
exhibited covers, since The Little Prince was published in 226 languages, and it demonstrates
that the author wrote his book in the enchantment of the numbers. We get to the planet of the
Little Prince with the help of a magic, where we may help in the cleaning of the volcanos.
In the following part we may look at the illustrations of the book, created by Exupéry himself.
We visit 6 planets here, then look at the airplane wrecks arriving at the desert, we may travel
between the planets and get acquainted with the Little Prince’s fox.
The exhibition invites the small ones and the big ones to a real charmed travel, where we may
go into the details of the wonderful and mystic world of the Little Prince for some minutes or
even for hours.
The dreamer of the original concept of the exhibition is Kiss Ágnes, puppet artist and director.
The visuals were designed by Szűcs Eszer Anita, graphic artist.

Laczkó Dezső Museum opens its doors in 2018 February again. The audience may visit the visual arts exhibition, which presents the diverse and dreamlike works of Marc Chagall. More Shorter
The audience is welcomed by S dr. Perémi Ágota, the director of the museum, the art collector Thomas Emmerling opens the exhibition. The curator of the exhibition is the art historian Sipos Anna.
The audience can visit the exhibition from February 16 to April 29 in the Laczkó Dezső Museum, which presents more than 150 works of one of the most successful artists of the 20th century, Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Chagall introduces an imaginary world through his works that fights with the elements of the nature. No wonder, since he finds the representation of the world not just boring, but disturbing, as well. So he presented the figures with bold colours and in a naïve way. He created his own painting method, which uses the traditions of the Russian and Jewish arts.
However during his 80 years Chagall always got in touch with the newest and the most dominant art genres, he never joined any of them, he stayed a figural and lyrical artist. He tried to avoid the abstract world, but the used the expressive power of colours perfectly. He left behind a great number of paintings, graphic works, drawings, statues, ceramics, painted windows, mosaics and crochets, as well.
From the 1940s many of his lithographies were published. We can find lithographies inspired by the Bible, we can find the illustrations of Homer’s Odyssey and the pages of Jacques Lassaigne Chagall, the ceiling picture of the Opera House of Paris and the sketches to the windows of the synagogue of the Hadassah University Hospital.

The local government of Veszprém and the House of Arts invite the audience to the exhibition called ‘Yesterdays and Todays/Private mythology’ of Györgydeák György to the Csikász Gallery (Vár u. 17., Veszprém). More Shorter
The curators of the exhibition:
Tóth Eszter, Hegyeshalmi László
We really appreciate the support of the institutions and the private entrepreneurs in opening the exhibition.
Györgydeák György was born in 1958 in Székesfehérvár. He completed his high school studies in Veszprém, and lived in Balatonkenese. He worked as a graphic artist in the Bakony Museum Veszprém for 10 years, was the editor of the Cigányfúró newspaper for 9 years, and the co-worker of the House of Arts, as well. He studied arts in an autodidact way. He was never obligated. Many people could get to know his works of art throughout the county and the country, furthermore, he had many exhibitions, too. His works – just like his whole life – represents humour and adventure. His works are primarily connected to Lake Balaton and to the nature.
Györgydeák made up of his tableau with wood, string, nail, sand, gyps, clay, textile, pieces of furniture, broken games of children, and many other things, so he reused the things we would have thrown away. The artist founded a new genre to explain his private mythology: Bübü.
Bübü refers to the strange and unrealistic puppets and statues of the artist. Most of them are similar to animals and fish – some of them to humans. But they are rather mythological creatures, just like the character of artist Lauz or Eototo and Aholi, the ghosts of Indians, or any other idols or gods of the people of nature.
The exhibition can be visited until 13.05.2018.
