Zsigmond Strobl Kisfaludi – The Master of the Classical Beauty

Date: 18.10.2018., Thursday 4:30 pm.
Place: Dezső Laczkó Museum ( Veszprém, Erzsébet promenade 1.)

Thanks to the cooperation between the Dezső Laczkó Museum and the Göcsi Museum in Zalaegerszegan exhibition have opened for the arts of sculptor Zsigmond Strobl Kisfaludi (1884-1975).
Welcome by Ágota Perémi PhD. museum director, Claudia Scharf Perlakiné head of the Mayor’s Administration and Cultural Office in Veszprém and Péter Velkey the head of the Human-directorate Department in Zalaegerszeg. Opening speech by László Kostály PhD. art historian, the curator of the exhibition and deputy manager of the Göcseji Museum.
The gallery has been available to the public thanks to the  cooperation of the Dezső Laczkó Museumand the Göcseji Museum.

Zsigmond Strobl Kisfaludi was an outstanding figure of the Hungarian graphic arts in the 20th century, who was also internationally recognized. He had a twisted but rich journey, which was interlocked with the momentous events of history. He was supported by the military staff of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy at the war, the Hungarian Soviet Republic, the Horthy Era between the two World Wars and collaterally by the British high society and the Rákosi then the Kádár Era.

Nevertheless, indisputable that he was a gifted, well-learned and expectionally productive artist. Apart from his experimenting in the fields of secession and progression in his early days, he followed the classical, academic school of art in his whole life. His testimony says “ the greatest master of the real artist is mother nature”. Soft, sensual acts, portraits of intense charachters, brilliantly componated, thrillful sculpture groups made him on of the bests of his age. Who had stepped on the path of such Hungarian sculptors like János Fadrusz, Ede Telcs, György Zala and became their flag-bearer.

According to his last will his inheritance became the part of Museum in Zalaegerszeg, and the most worthful pieces can be seen on a permanent exhibition since 1976. This year, the redecoration of the Göcseji Museum gave us the opportunity to host his arts in Veszprém for a while. In the gallery will be shown more than 40 statuettes, coins and plaquetts, including items usually stood in the storage.

The exhibition is open from 27. Jan. 2019 from 10 am. - 6 pm. on everyday, except Mondays.

„Ezernyolcszáznegyvennyolc, Te Csillag” - Emlékkiállítás


„One thousand eight hundred forty-eight, You Star” - Remembrance Exhibition (04/11/2018 - 12/02/2018)

On the 170. anniversary of the 1848-49 Hungarian Revolution and War new temporary exhibition can be seen in the Museum Dezső Laczkó. More Shorter

Visitable: 11. April. 2018 - 02. December 2018.
Place:  DEZSŐ LACZKÓ MUSEUM

The opening date has a symbolic meaning aswell, as on the same day in 1848 the “April laws” have been accepted. 

Our exhibition shows the relics of 1848, which belong to the museum since 1903 to our days.

The bulk of the objects have been gathered by our first director Dezső Laczkó in the 1903-1914 “glory days”. Most of them are from families or relatives, usually connected to a person, therefore extremely valuable. Their preservation is a proof of how those people had tied to and thought about the happenings and the participants in 1848.

Unfortunately our knowledge about the personal relics are varying. Count Lajos Batthyány Prime Minister (1808-1849) and Mór Perczel (1811-1899) reform politican are both well-known personals of the Hungarian Revolution and War, but others were only proud or necessary participants and were not in charge or were only supporting characters of the story.

Near the Dezső Laczkó Museum there is Bakony House, which is one of the earliest Hungarian open-air ethnographical museums. In 1935 it was built from public donations as a copy of a gentry’s landhouse of Öcs. The designers were László Nagy ethnographer and György Linzmayer architect.

(8200 Veszprém, Vár utca 9.)

On the south-western end of the castle there is the single tower of the castle, the 48 metres high Fire Tower. The Tower’s cylindrical part, which was made from crushed stone can be medieval, but we didn’t know the exact construction time. The Tower’s foundation is on the square’s level in front of the Castle hill, its entrance opened from the inner parts of the castle and it is several metres above the foundation. The tower’s floor plan can be found on survey drawings of Giulio Turco, the Emperor’s war engineer, which was made around 1570. The 17th century’s engravings illustrate a blocky tower in the place of Fire Tower. Near the Fire Tower around 1660 was built the south-west corner tower.


Dungeon

The new permanent exhibition, which entitled “The life of the minus third floor, Dungeon in the 21th century” is about not just the dungeon as a building and interest, but it demonstrates several exciting themes. In the exhibition there is a Jószef Mindszenty memorial room, an exhibition unit about the life of the inmates and the history of the oubliette, the exhibition entitled “Bakony outlaws on the hand of the pandours”, and visitors can see the slots, chapel, look-out tower, command room and the sanitary. Besides these, film projection waits for the visitors.

Permanent exhibition: The life of the minus third floor, Dungeon in the 21th century

On 23th October 2015 the Dungeon's permanent exhibition had got a new exhibition unit, which entitled as After ’56 in the shadows of the gallows-trees.

The exhibition, from 1956 to 1967 until the last execution, shows the sanctions period’s significant momentum in connection with Veszprém county.

PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS AT THE SALESIANUM (07/08/2016 - 12/31/2017)

Liturgical place to exhibit, baroque rooms, room for the herbs of Halimba, show room for violin fabrication, medical herb garden and a lot of other curiosity from the offer of the Salesianum’s permanent exhibitions. More Shorter

Liturgical place to exhibit 

The attic gallery was designed on the second floor of the building, where visitors can take a look on the day-to-day-life of the Archdiocese and can get to know the everyday use of liturgical objects. A liturgical calendar is cited by multimedia tools, liturgy devices are displayed for the visitors, they can also visit the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Veszprém’s store of sheet music and can listen to the musical creations from the 19-20th century. The visitors can take a virtual tip in the Archdiocese and in Veszprém via an interactive multimedia device, while they can discover the past and the present of the virtually visited places.


Baroque rooms

Four interior styled, fresco decorated baroque room awaits the visitors on the floor of the Salesianum. They can experience the atmosphere of the baroque world through contemporary artworks. Visitors have the opportunity to know more about former, well-known residents of the house, including Martin II. Padányi-Bíró the bishop of Veszprém, who was an outstanding patron of the artistic work in the diocese during the 18th century. They can admire the landscape themed frescos from the end of the 18th century, which can be found in every room on the given floor in an exigent quality, differently from the baroque practice. With the guidance of the “Picture-counter desk” it is possible to follow the work of the restorers and the wonderful alteration of the baroque rooms. In the other two rooms the hidden treasures of the Bishop Archive and Library are displayed: incunabula, scrapbooks- and albums, manuscripts, maps and certificates.


Room for the herbs of Halimba

At the right side of the entrance is the Halimba Medical-Herb-room, which displays the story of Dr. Miklós Szalai, also known as the “medical herb” priest from Halimba. The nationwide known herbalist was pronounced a charlatan before the transition, but later the Halimbárium medical herb mixtures were named after him. At the exhibition dried medical herb tableaus and glass covered containers show the medical-and culinary herbs, the recipes of the “medical herb” priest, and also some interesting information about medical herbs and herbal teas.


Show room for violin fabrication

Who does not longed for being the invisible viewer the birth of something new. Looking through a window, watching the smooth hand moves, while those hands are brushing the lumber with a plane again and again, always finding something to stroke the spot we thought was already perfect. Taking a deep breathe of the workshop’s scent, the scent from the bland, resin released from shavings, glue and vapor of plants. To be the witness how lumber turns into a soul touching musical instrument. Who does not longs for this…

In the workshop of Archdiocese Touristic Center of the Salesianum all of this is possible.

Violin always have got a special attention among the instruments. Its birth was surrounded with mystery. What is this secret? The lumber? The lacquer? The mater’s hands?

Elemér Sümegi’s workshop, in a small building in the court of Archdiocese Touristic Center of the Salesianum, can be visited since 2011. The baroque surrounding, in front of the Archbishop Palace, of the former Bíró – Giczey house or as the residents of Veszrpém known the “bird house” seemingly offered the establishment of the violin making workshop. The visitor can be the witness some workflow: formation of a new violin or cello, even old instrument’s restoration.

The carpenter tool collection from the 19th and early 20th century commemorates former artisan masters in the workshop.

Unusual lessons, group sessions, presentations are available with previous consultation for school-, work groups and group of friends.

Veszprém, a fesztiválváros


Veszprém, the city of festivals (01/01/2015 - 12/31/2015)

Playing is a joy that we can all claim as eternal children all year round. If you do not believe it, you can see it for yourself! We celebrate dance, arts and our traditions, street music, boystrous children, happiness and the love-bearing summer with festivals. More Shorter

The Festival of Dance opens the events in Spring with the greatest contemporary dance artists in Hungary. The best dance groups and performers enchant the audiences during the days of the festival, which is regarded as a prestige event for the profession. The Gizella Days Festival, one of the largest cultural events of the city, encourages the generations to appreciate and promote our culture and traditions. The festival provides opportunities to perform with the arts ensembles of Veszprém and its twin towns, as well as the art groups of the minorities living here.

In Summer, Veszprém also enjoys its festivals...

Al Dimeola, Paco de Lucia, Bobby McFerrin, Katie Melua … Veszprém is the city where for almost a decade world famous stars have walked our cobblestoned streets. Opera, jazz, soul, swing and instrumental guitar music... Veszprém is the place where the most different musical styles and genres form a coherent entity in the frame of VeszprémFest.

VeszprémFest has become one of the most renowned high quality music events in Hungary, and, like a magnet, has attracted thousands into the majestic atmosphere of Veszprém Castle. The 18th century Baroque style façades and excellent acoustics of the Szentháromság (Holy Trinity) Square are unique props serving the excellent musical experience.

Besides VeszprémFest, there are various other artistic and cultural events, including Folklore Festivities and Best of the World Evenings in August. The Vivace International Choir Festival attracts participants from Japan to Finland and thousands visit the Veszprém Festivities Crafts Fair as well.

Mates, party and rock and roll... the Street Music Festival provides all of these in the middle of the summer, when street performers  representing various styles fill the squares of the city centre, tuning, strumming, drumming and singing from dawn to dawn.

Having fun with us... because Veszprém does not think only of the ‘eternal children’! The youngest ones can enjoy the Kabóciádé Children’s Festival, where the empire of the puppets offer treasures to discover and playing is always fun.

 We need to play, as we know from Shakespeare “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”. Veszprém is proud to have three theatres where the talents perform on the stages from week to week.

In the city’s 103-year-old stone Petőfi Theatre and in the recently refurbished Bujtor-Latinovits Chamber Theatre exciting plays of contemporary Hungarian and international playwrights are performed by excellent actors and actresses without forgetting the classic pieces. The theatres also tempt visitors with musicals, children’s and other plays offering light entertainment.

The Pannon Theatre has been offering high quality performances for ten years now, not only in their theatre building but also in the culture centres of rural areas, in retro venues or even in the environment of the castles and the fortresses of the Bakony. The theatre has helped to breathe life into and has been organising the Veszprém Spring Festival, the Festival of Dance and also the FüredFest on the shore of Lake Balaton, offering spectacular programmes from spring to autumn.

In our welcoming and family friendly city the little ones are not left out of the theatrical programmes as the Kabóca Puppet Theatre is open for them all year round. Here they can be part of a real company game: the puppet exhibition in the Puppet Den, play groups, adventures, fun guided tours and last but not least the puppet theatre performances provide great fun and entertainment.

We open the gates of the festivals and theatres of Veszprém and invite you kindly with the respect due to kings and queens to enjoy these fabulous and magical happenings!
