Frida Kahlo: masterpieces from the Museo Dolores Olmedo, Mexico City

More than thirty paintings and other works by Frieda Kahlo are being brought on loan to Budapest. The selection – which not only features the artist’s hallmark self‑portraits, but also includes such major works as her very first canvas, painted in 1927, as well as paintings and portraits inspired by the events in her life, works suffused with symbolism, drawings, and even photographs – offers a glimpse inside the inner world of Frida Kahlo, and shows us the mythical reality that she experienced and recreated. »

Promotion of the 30th issue of "Herito"

Bałkany obrosły stereotypami jak mało który region Europy. Już w XIX wieku stygmatyzowano tam wielkich i małych. Osmańską Turcję – „chorego człowieka Europy” – i dzielnie zrzucających jej jarzmo Serbów, Rumunów, Bułgarów czy Albańczyków. Widziano w nich „ludy bez historii”, zdane na łaskę i niełaskę mocarstw, niepotrafiące w pełni same o sobie stanowić.
