The latest exhibition at the Modern Gallery presents an unusual temporary exhibition of his internationally significant Hungarian private collection. The title of the exhibition, a quote borrowed from the Swiss painter Richard Paul-Lohse, is the common thread that visually defines the latest selection of the collection.

The aim of the exhibition is to present the most important European-connected artists in constructivist and concrete art, highlighting the great masters of Swiss concrete art, the specific world of sculptural drawings and artists who experimented with re-thinking theories of colour.
