Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art collects and displays masterworks of modern and contemporary art. The permanent collection contains valuable pieces of American pop art (Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg etc.). Yet focusing on Eastern and Central European art, it also puts a special emphasis on presenting the Hungarian art of the 60′s to recent days in an international context. Besides, temporary exhibitions showcase leading artists of the international scene as well as the best-known Hungarian masters.
Magyar Telekom’s innovation lab, Kitchen Budapest, opened in June 2007, is a new media lab for young researchers who are interested in the convergence of mobile communication, online communities and urban space and are passionate about creating experimental projects in cross-disciplinary teams.
Intermedia undertakes to extend artist training to cover art forms and artistic techniques that had made their first appearance in the 20th century, such as photokinetic and electronic arts, multimedia art, installation, environment and action art, new communication technologies, interdisciplinarity and borderline areas of the plastic arts.
Today the Department is Hungary’s leading institution in the field of Media Studies. The Department has been consistently ranked as first in national academic rankings based on research, teaching quality and career opportunities.
The Department regularly organises conferences, workshops and public debates to address the most important – sometimes exciting, other times alarming – developments in contemporary media and culture.
