The House of Arts Veszprém and the MAGMA Contemporary Art Exhibition Space in Sfântu Gheorghe are organizing a two-site joint exhibition entitled The Last Moment. Venues: Csikász Gallery, Veszprém, Hungary; MAGMA Contemporary Art Exhibition Space, Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania

The climate, energy, raw materials, water and viruses crises are all seemingly insurmountable problems of our time. Since the 2000s, natural scientists have been warning more and more loudly of the problems that are arising. Today, some problems are beyond reversal, and pessimistic scientists believe that our modern technological civilisation in its present form will collapse within a few decades.

Even more moderate techno-optimists believe that if humanity does not change some of its habits and take action to stop waste and environmental degradation, the consequences could be truly catastrophic in the near future…

Of course, we did not want to narrow our thinking so much to the few global problems of our planet that we have highlighted, and our focus is mainly on radical crisis management. “

During the duration of the exhibition, on 2 designated days, the artists of the exhibition and the MAGMA Contemporary Art Exhibition Space will be presented as a mini-festival. They will give lectures on the current situation of Hungarian and Romanian contemporary art in Transylvania, present their renowned education programme, and give art education lectures for young people and adults. The evenings will close with noise music concerts.
