Saturday 26 June – Friday 27 August, József Katona Memorial House
The temporary exhibition venue of József Katona Memorial House in Kecskemét hosts the special exhibition called Hungarian Folk Tales ‒ Selected drawings of films made by the Kecskemét Animation Film Studio. Visitors can view large textile prints of typical scenes from well known and popular cartoons made by the creative studio in Kecskemét between 1977 and 2011.
Recalling the Hungarian Folk Tales series can never be out of date, as it has become part of our day-to-day lives, our cultural heritage and identity over the past decades. But now, in the summer of 2021, it is also connected to multiple anniversaries. KAFF is organized for the fifteenth time, studio director Ferenc Mikulás celebrated his eightieth birthday last year, and the studio managed by him is exactly fifty years old. It is to our deep regret that the one under whose direction the production of Hungarian Folk Tales started, the greatest knower of tales and symbols, Marcell Jankovics has recently passed away. Respect and thanks are due to the artists who brought so much joy to Hungarian and global audiences over this half a century. The exhibition can be visited from 26 June to 27 August 2021, and the Memorial House is open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday. The organizers are looking forward to welcoming the guests, children and adults alike.
