- Hungary Matters
The museum’s exhibition of Hungarian aristocracy in the 17th-19th century, which drew some 700,000 visitors in the Shanghai Museum since June 2017, featured a five-meter interactive display dubbed the Magic Wall, allowing visitors to inspect the exhibited objects interactively.
The wall, which won the grand prize at AVICOM’s F@IMP 2.0 online festival, is a Hungarian innovation developed mostly in Shanghai. Currently, several Chinese museums and Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts own such interactive surfaces.
The MNM’s documentary on a memorial to forced labour in the communist era, Hungarian National Museum Malenkij Robot Memorial Place, won the gold medal in its category.
The open-air museum in Szentendre, near Budapest, was awarded silver medals for the short film I’m from Hungary and the documentary Hand/Craft/Art.
The Petőfi Museum of literature won a bronze medal for its exhibition dubbed CSÁTH* The sorcerer’s garden.
