In early 2012, the Korean Cultural Center opened its doors in Budapest, and the King Sejong Institute promoting the Korean language began its operations in Hungary. In 2019, the Center moved to the Margaret Island neighbourhood, a favourite with Budapest residents, and reopened its doors to the public in November, on the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Hungary and South Korea. In addition to Korean language classes, the complex offers a wide range of free cultural experiences, for example exhibitions, concerts, workshops, and film screenings. 


Korean Contemporary Photography: Insights into Nature and Humanity

The exhibition, introducing the representative works of twelve Korean photographers, sheds light on the historical scene in Korean contemporary photography which has been continuosly converging and diverging since its beginning in the late 1980s. ‘Korean Contemporary Photography: Insights into Nature and Humanity’ is kaleidoscopic as it embraces the historical flow of Korean photography from the late 1980s to the early 2010s and captures the present moment at the same time. The overall scene of Korean contemporary photography is presented through the individual achievement of twelve artists while the dynamic flow of change and stillness is also outlined.
