LABOR Gallery, Budapest, Hungary
Under the title of Marshall McLuhan in Europe 2011, there has been a series of events dedicated to the centenary of Marshall McLuhan’s birth throughout Europe. The Budapest events have included creative sessions, workshops, researches, exhibitions, discussions and conferences to present the work and heritage of probably the most influential of media theorists to the public.
The Ludwig Museum participated in the project with its Media Month events and a summer day camp. In May 2011, media was in focus of the talks and discussions at the Museum’s regular museum education workshop (Teacher’s Tuesday), while the greatest emphasis was placed on creative work. On four Saturdays at the regular creative sessions (i.e. Family Matinee and Integrated Family Matinee) as well as at the thematic Marshall McLuhan Workshop, from the smallest to grandparents everyone could express their impressions and thoughts in connection with the media in a creative way. The Medium in Focus summer art camp in June was meant for teenagers to project their feelings and experiences about the topic into works of art. The Messages to Marshall McLuhan exhibition at LABOR Galley displays these creations as a decent finale of the creative work.
