Project Description

The editorial board of MúzeumCafé, the magazine of Hungarian museums under the editorship of the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, launched a series of volumes on the museum profession in 2013. The volumes are non-profit products filling a gap, works containing studies by Hungarian museum professionals, academic staff and researchers.

Péter György, university professor and Director of the Institute of Art Theory and Media Studies of the Faculty of Arts, Eötvös Loránd University, and Doctor of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, is the author of the first volume in the series. He writes the following about the book in the preface.

'This volume includes 17 museum historical and critical studies, as well as essays, which analyse the theoretical terms of the institution’s practice. A museum is a house for learning, which operates in varied urban and cultural spaces in different eras. My recurring question concerns how the different contexts overwrite the notion of a museum, how it can remain partly the same under the pressures and possibilities. This volume presents memories and lessons of travels. I hope I am not mistaken in believing that the reader would benefit from all I have learnt, in discussions, questions and answers alike.'

In each volume the books’ layout artists introduce the work of an artist belonging to the current young generation of typeface designers. We would like to present these designs at an exhibition together with applications. The first volume features the Frustro Outline typeface of Márton Hegedűs (b.1987). The work of this student at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts was inspired by the art of Escher. An important aim with the series of MúzeumCafé Books is to support renewal of the Hungarian culture of books, which enjoys a great tradition, and we hope that our readers also recognize the significance of the quiet yet visible typographical variations that affect a book in its entirety as an object.
