    History of lighting technology

    The tirelessly searching human mind that can never rest has found the method with which it can outsoar the light of the inaccessible “sun” that allows it to conjure fairy light from dark skies and created daylight from the night. And all these immortal achievements have been reached by electricity that has been peeked and riddled from the secrets of nature.” – Kiskunhalas, 1898. Our weekly exhibition is going to guide you into the world of the development history of lighting technology, with the aid of archive photos from our database.

    Tree as symbol

    Your repeating daily rituals give you few occasions to notice the changes of our environment. Though, it is very calming to stroll under a shady alley and feel as the light filtered by leaves caresses your face. The life cycle of trees is similar to yours. Birth, budding youth, dignified old age. The symbol system related to trees is as old as humanity; this is our topic this week.

    Story of the Valley and the collection of the Kapolcs Club

    In the spring of 1985, a red Zhiguli stopped in the middle of a street in Kapolcs, in front of Elli Márvány’s gate, got out of the car and asked: “Is there a house for sale in the village?” He was lucky, because a very nice little peasant house became vacant those days, so they went to see it and bought it immediately. This was how Kapolcs met István Márta and it was followed by the formation of Kapolcs Club and the Valley of Arts. With this exhibition we are going to introduce the beginnings of the Kapolcs Festival and the collection of Kapolcs Club.

    Kossuth cult

    There is no settlement without a Kossuth statue, street or square in Hungary. According to Erzsébet Reznák, director of the Kossuth Museum of Cegléd, his bronze or stone statue is the most frequent sculpture type that stands on public places. Where does his first public statue stand, and why is the city of Cegléd so special? This week’s assortment unveils the answers.

    Science of jugglery and its legendary Hungarian masters: Rodolfo and Houdini

    Magicians and illusionists exploit the deficiencies of human thinking and perception with their tricks, creating the illusion of supernatural skills. Although wizardry cannot be learnt by practising magic tricks, certain dangerous spectacles, for example escaping, allow you to develop such amazing attributions like bravery or the ability of overcoming panic in extremely stressful situations.

Virtual exhibitions

Besides searching and browsing digitized cultural contents, visitors can view thematic virtual exhibitions from the records of MaNDA’s database, which are widened weekly. Our aim with the exhibitions is to introduce the cultural contents of the database in a new context, in a way that they would never be in the same virtual room otherwise, due to their spatial, legal or formal features. You can see our former exhibitions under this menu.

Establishment of Europeana

During the period of the Swedish EU presidency in April 2001 in Lund, representatives of the then 15 Member States formulated their demand that a breakthrough in the field of cultural digitisation was necessary. One of their most important issues was that a cooperative forum should be created in order to put cultural digitisation in the European dimension and the accessibility and visibility of the European digital cultural heritage must be promoted.
