Hungarian modernism may be a terra incognita for many,
but the distinguished art historian Éva Forgács is
an invaluable guide to the territory.
Her essays are shafts of light
illuminating a complex terrain that is not only
located at the center of Europe but, given the seismic political shifts
that have occurred there,
is central to the history that defined the twentieth century.
