10 Treurenberg, 1000 Brussels
Traveling through the countries of East-Central Europe, one can easily spot various Art Nouveau gems. It is no coincidence that from Budapest (Hungary) to Marosvásárhely/Târgu Mureș (Romania) and from Pozsony/Bratislava (Slovakia) to Szabadka/Subotica (Serbia) one can find the handiwork of the same architects: at the turn of the century, this region formed not only a solid cultural region, but also a single administrative territorial unit as the Kingdom of Hungary. The photographs of Dorka Demeter aim to present a non-exhaustive overview of this rich architectural heritage. The material of the exhibition places the emphasis on common features; furthermore, it presents the handiwork of the same architects and artists without borders.
Exhibition opening: 9 June 2023, 7PM
You can visit the exhibition from 30 May to 16 June 2023.
Born in Transylvania, the influencer Dorka Demeter inherited her passion for Art Nouveau from her mother. She has lived in Brussels for 12 years, where she had the opportunity to explore the city's Art Nouveau heritage in depth during the first COVID lockdown. It was then when she launched her @magicofartnouveau Instagram profile, which counts by now almost 30,000 followers. This was followed by the @artnouveau.brussels Instagram profile that focuses on the Art Nouveau heritage of Brussels. She is the Art Nouveau Editor of welovebrussels.org where she has published several articles about architecture and heritage. In 2022, she became individual member of the Reseau Art Nouveau Network (RANN). Wherever she travels, she photographes and shares Art Nouveau gems with her increasingly widening audience. This is how she has turned into a true ambassador of Hungarian Art Nouveau.
