From cellar to attic – Autumn Festival of Museums at MODEM

Since 2006, the Autumn Festival of Museums has been an annual series of cultural events over an extended period. Its aim is to promote museums in a broad sense, not only to draw attention to museums, but also to keep it alive with exciting, modern, entertaining, and year-round programs.

As part of the Autumn Festival of Museums, visitors are welcome to MODEM on 28 October 2023, where they will be shown from cellar to attic how one of Hungary’s largest contemporary art centers works.

Guests will have the opportunity to view Marcell Esterházy’s TIMELINES exhibition and a selection from MODEM’s collection of films. They will show you what is hidden in a museum’s art warehouse and what happens in a research room during the processing of an art object.
