Kultur.Kontakt.Konkret – Works from the Vass Collection

26. March - 11. June

 Over 20 years ago, László Vass founded a museum for his outstanding collection of concrete, constructive and minimal art at Veszprém, Hungary. From the kinship with the Schroth Collection in Soest, a special cooperation developed: While an exhibition of the Schroth Collection is on show at Veszprém’s art museum for the programme kick-off of the European Capital of Culture 2023 Veszprém-Balaton, works from the Vass Collection are on display at the Museum Wilhelm Morgner with ARTROOM SCHROTH until 11 June 2023.

The collecting of the Budapest-based master shoemaker follows the ideal of bringing together as complete a cross-section as possible of the history and present of constructive and concrete art. In addition to international positions, the exhibition in the ARTROOM SCHROTH, Hans-Kaiser-Room and Foyer of the Museum Wilhelm Morgner focuses on Hungarian artists. This is where the roots of the Vass Collection have been since the 1970s. Hungary had and still has a committed scene of this art movement, which produced many renowned representatives such as Dóra Maurer, István Haász, Vera Molnar or Victor Vasarely (†).

We would like to thank Mr. László Vass and the Művészetek Háza, Veszprém for the successful cooperation.
