“Seeing Red: Hungarian Revolutionary Posters” at MoMA

MoMA’s Architecture and Design Wing in New York City recently opened “Seeing Red: Hungarian Revolutionary Posters, 1919”, a mini-exhibition of rare avant-garde posters from the short-lived Hungarian Revolution of 1919. Well represented are the powerful work of Mihaly Biro, Sandor Bortynik and Bertalan Por. Hungarian patriots and devoted Socialists, all three were forced to leave their country after the Hungarian Revolution failed. Hungary’s loss was Modernism’s gain as all became active in Modernist developments elsewhere in Europe.
