The exhibition Mary (Polish for “mares” in Old English) is a kind of script, or more precisely a reconstruction, of a performance originally directed in a dream. Oskar Dawicki, a literary and film figure, an artist known as a practitioner of total performance, presents this time a dystopian narrative. The central figure in his vision is a pregnant woman, the heroine of our times, nourisher of the unborn but also caretaker of the dead.
In the 1960s, the Rhineland was an important focus for massive changes in contemporary art. A new internationally networked generation of artists turned away from traditional notions of art. Inspiration came from everyday life. Everyday objects became the material for art. These artists worked in urban contexts, they broke across the borders between disciplines, and they collaborated with musicians, writers, filmmakers and dancers.

Within Frames is the first exhibition staged by the Hungarian National Gallery that presents a comprehensive picture of Hungarian art between 1958 and 1968. A significant part of the 350 or so exhibits – paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings, books, posters and works of applied art – are not included in permanent exhibitions and many of them had been concealed from the public for the five or six decades since they entered public collections.
