Boglárka Csemer, alias Boggie songwriter and performer, is characterized by a unique musical world that highlights her in the Hungarian music palette. An artistic, sophisticated songwriter who masterfully combines classical music, pop, French sanzon and world music elements. Her first album, featuring the song Parfüm, made it to the American Billboard list, and she received a Phonogram award for her second album. She represented Hungary at the 60th Vienna Eurovision Festival with the song "Wars for Nothing". At the concert in the museum, she will perform well-known Christmas songs for the occasion in jazz-acoustic arrangements.

Venue: 1st floor Dome Hall

Living Collection no.4

6.00 pm– 6.30 pm

The idea for this exhibition project was prompted by the fact that just a few hundred of the works in the Hungarian National Gallery’s rich collection of nineteenth- and twentieth-century sculpture (out of a total of almost 5000 items) are presented to the public in permanent or temporary exhibitions. Our aim is to breathe new life into some of these museum sculptures, and to make them more visible with the help of some contemporary sculptors. Inspired by the selected works from our collection, new works of art were born. The contemporary works and the “source” sculptures from the collection will be presented as “guerrilla exhibitions”, each lasting a month, and each held in a different area of the gallery.

The fourth sculpture pair is Flóra (1860) by Ferenc Dinnert and the contemporary work of Gábor Fülöp. The contemporary sculpture can first be seen by the Museum+ audience!

Venue: 1st floor Dome Hall


6 pm – 9.30 pm "Christmas bells and soft snow"

During the workshop you can make a door knocker and various Christmas decorations.
