The biggest scam of the last century … read onwards.

Why did scientists claim that Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s father was Moses?

From the pen of Gerald O’Farrell, a very dubious theory came to light, which he explains in the book The Mystery of Tutankhamun. This theory goes so far as to make Moses identical with the historical ruler, Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s father, Pharaoh Ehnaton.

The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb was the greatest sensation of the 1920s and has remained so for decades. On the one hand, the story of the young pharaoh was a web of mysteries and intrigues, while two English-minded gentlemen, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, made an inventory of the finds for ten years, while the discovery of the tombs did not go smoothly.

According to several theories, it was a simple grave robbery, and the surrounding myth and curse may have been part of a propaganda that was a series of pre-planned murders and the disappearance of eyewitnesses was the main motivation.

Gerald O’Farrell goes straight to the point where Carter lost scrolls from Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb and damaged the tombstone and himself because he wanted information lost.

It was already known that Carter forged documents, manipulated photos, and wrote reports for the Egyptian Archaeological Office because he wanted to send most of the treasures found to America and Britain. Incidentally, it is worth noting that Master Carter was a collaborator of Heinrich Schliemann – German archaeologist who led the excavation of Troy, who also smuggled treasures home in a similar way.

In recent decades, several treasures kept in various institutions have been found to come from Tutankhamun’s tomb. The Metropolitan Museum has about 20 works of art from Tutankhamun’s tomb in its collection. The Brooklyn Museum owns a statue of a girl, an ointment spoon and a blue glass vase.

Many scholars have already explained the relationship between biblical figures and pharaohs. However, the most interesting theory appeared in Ammed Osman’s famous book, Moses, Pharaoh of Egypt.

He rightly claims that Pharaoh Ehnaton was an existing person, but the existence of Moses is questionable historically. On the other hand, there is ample historical evidence to support that the pharaohs may have been biblical Jewish patriarchs. Or Ehnaton was the first pharaoh to introduce the cult of Aton, monotheism, and it was among his teachings that salvation is available to all.

According to Gerald O’Farell, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon are not as heroes as we have considered them so far. He calls them downright ordinary grave robbers and history forgers.

We’ll never know how many artifacts Carter and Carnarvon have attributed and what happened to them, but we can be sure that if even a slight part of it was true, there was hardly a crime in history that would have ended in such a spectacular result.

I can’t promise that you can find anything evidence from Moses at the exhibition, but quite a few of Tutenhamon’s treasures can still be seen in the KOMPLEX @ Budapest. Tickets are available in limited numbers at known ticket offices or on the spot.

Program of Veszprém-Balaton Filmpiknik will be enriched by many Q&As with the films’ directors, producers and actors,film industry programs and concerts on the spot. Eight features, two documentaries and a a handful of short films with English subtitles.

The opening film of the Filmpikni, Valan by Béla Bagota, Péter has to return to the Transylvanian mining town after receiving a phone call that the body of his sister might have been found. His personal investigation in Valan takes him back to the labyrinth of the past where he must face his own demons. On the Quiet (Szép csendben), directed by Zoltán Nagy,is also a dark drama that takes place in a conservatory’s orchestra, where we suspect that a 14-year-old girl’s suspiciously close relationship with their 60-year-old conductor is more than what it seems. In FOMO directed by Attila Hartung, Gergő and his teenage friends are into three things: partying, sex, and their online following. One night, at a party, Lilla falls victim to the boys. A dare gets out of hand and the youngsters’ world changes forever overnight. György Mór Kárpáti’s Guerilla is also about young people dating back to 1849. It is a minimalistic and excellently filmed moral drama about killing or being killed. Finally, Márk Bodzsár’s Comrade Drakulich – set in the 70’s – is a hilarious black comedy warning us that vampires are among us! But no need to worry: the Hungarian Secret Police are after them, and beyond the usual spy gadgets, they even use garlic to repel the beasts. A compilation of four short films and the award-winning documentary, The Euphoria of Being (A létezés eufóriája) will also be screened. Éva Fahidi was 20 years old when she returned from Auschwitz.

Three great classics also be watched with English subtitles. It’s Rain and Shine Together (Veri az ördög a feleségét) is a satire by Ferenc András made in 1977. The story – which takes place at Lake Balaton – depicts late-Kádár socialism wrapped up in the ‘big blowout’ motif.The Age of Daydreaming (Álmodozások kora), István Szabó’s debut film from 1964, is a story inspired by personal experience that captures his own generation’s dreams, desires and search for a way forward. Finally Géza Bereményi’s first film as a director from 1985, The Disciples (Tanítványok) is based on actual historical events set in the 1930s and 1940s as seen from the perspective of a young man (Károly Eperjes) eager to learn who has moved from a rural farm to the capital.

The 16th BuSho International Short Film Festival @ Budapest 2020

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The 16th BuSho International Short Film Festival kicks off on September, 1, 2020.,  with previous Sundance, Cannes and BAFTA awards nominees in the program, and we will publish a short film trailer every night on our Facebook. We’ll deal with these works in a little more detail in our announcer article below, but we’ll start by fundamentally transforming the short film “market,” what we’d rather call a system.
Whereas in the past different nations produced short films almost exclusively within their own borders, today it has become fully international, which means co-production has appeared within the category. Two Israeli directors have reached the competition, but one will be British and the other Serbian this year.
The distribution and festivaling makes things even more confusing, because in vain we believed at the time of entry that there were plenty of Spanish works from Promofest, and then we saw for example, Cargo is Malay, Low Tide is Irish, Archibald’s Syndrome is French and Overland starting in American colours. Among the short films of Aug & Ohr in Berlin, the other big package nominee, was O.I. and Oracle Canadian, Spoon American, W Greek, but of course there are rarely German ones, as in the genre rarity number menu short film musical, Bonbon. The experimental film Oracle, directed by Aaron Poole, will examine the point in a child’s life where anxiety and fear come to mind.
Of course, Agencies and Academies or Filmschools are different, because, for example, we continue to receive excellent domestic works from, among others, the Film Akademie Baden-Württemberg, such as The Captain in this year’s competition or Masel Tov Cocktail. In the film “Captain,” recorded by Steve Bache, lifeguard Frank tries to maintain his role as a model in his son’s life after a serious accident. Our other big comeback is Hamburg Media School, who this time, in addition to the opening film of the festival’s competition program, Among Humans, made it to the main table with 2 more films from the same school semester, these are Offense and Mall. Finally, we cannot pass by without mention about the new generation of Czech animated films, which give a third of the animation competition program, including Hide N Seek from FAMU in Prague and S p a c e s. BuSho Festival cannot pass without great Polish animated films, so we are pleased to present the work of Fumi studio, Piotr Milczarek Rain, which the creators have described as a simple animated film about collective consciousness.
Last year’s BuSho winner Salam’s French agency sent some exellent shorts again, for example the North Macedonian Sticker, directed by Georgi M. Unkovski, which premiered at the Sundance Festival.
Two shortfilms from Russia got selected, Meatgrinder, directed by Vladislav Bakhanovich as well as Praskovya, directed by Alexander Solovyov, who were both winners of the most recent Moscow Short Film Festival.
Every year we get more and more Iranian works, and the great 113 from Neda Assef is the proof that the reason is not only because of the entry fee waiver, resulting from the insolvency sanction, but the film industry is booming. In the film, Soldier No. 113 is so tired that he fell asleep in the conference room of the military base where the leadership meetings are held.
In 2019, Dekel Berenson, the above mentioned Israeli director was nominated for Anna in Cannes for the Golden Palm and recently got BAFTA nominations, otherwise he is a dual Hungarian citizen currently living in Cyprus. The film is the story of Anna, a war-torn Eastern Ukraine, an aging single mother who longs for change. The other Israeli director’s film Moon Drops by Yoram Ever-Hadani, when a factory worker assembles a mysterious machine that produces liquid droplets from the moonlight.
Without claiming completeness, we hope to satisfy the interested audience and we will meet in the first week of September at the 16th BuSho festival, we look forward to seeing you all: http://www.busho.hu.

Wondering & Wandering Back in Time – Through 1334 – 1325 BC. 

Like much else, all the mysteries and treasures of the Tutankhamun Exhibition were quarantined in March at the KOMPLEX on Király utca (King Street) Budapest. The organizers, on the other hand, ensured the supervision of the treasures from the first moment, in addition to the appropriate security measures, and provided continuous guarding of the relics even during the temporary closure. Now, in the period of reopening, the organizers of the exhibition have placed tremendous emphasis not only on the treasures of incomprehensible value, but also on maintaining the health safety of visitors.

“The reopening of the Tutankhamun exhibition is not only for those interested, but being on a kind of holiday to Egypt. A surprise and a special offer: on July 30 and 31, one child per family can view the exhibition for free of charge … only applies to children aged 6-14. Those who arrive on the first few days of the reopening of the Tutankhamun exhibition will have a special experience,” said the communications manager of JVS Group Hungary.

Items seen through the slideshow have been at first glance in 1922 discovery of over 5,000 artifacts by Howard Carter  @ Tunankhamun’s Tomb. Some of his treasure has traveled worldwide and  after the lockdown quarantines the Budapest’s locals and foreigners staying, living in Hungary needn’t have to travel … especially now-a-days … to Egypt nor to London to see and get the feeling visiting the long gone past Egyptian New Kingdom – 18th Dynasty.

The Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities allowed tours beginning in 1962 with the exhibit at the Louvre in Paris, followed by the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan. Needless to mention exhibits drew in millions of visitors. Between 1972–1979 exhibit was shown in United States, Soviet Union, Japan, France, Canada, and at the era of the West Germany.

Antonio Tempesta Painted on Precious Stone @ György Ráth Museum – Budapest

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Exhibition open: January, 17. – March, 29. 2020.

District: VI., 12. Városliget fasor 12.

Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Tickets on the spot.

Been to György Ráth Villa Museum? Worthwhile not only art lovers by locals and/or tourists, foreigners staying Hungary.

Officially open exhibition @  Budapest on Antonio Tempesta – precious and rare – Lapis Lazuli stone of Old Testament painting cannot be seen anywhere else in the World.

An Antonio Tempesta was rediscovered in the collection of the Museum of Applied Arts – Budapest at the storage parcel on the basement level whilst the buildings was going through an enormous renovation. The paintings were absolutely unknown when found with severely damaged and some pieces were also missing. Took several years for the restoration of the paintings. Also required research and coordinated efforts with experimental restorers. Thanks to the high level of knowledge by the restorers painstaking and subtle work the Tempesta’s marvelous handwork can be from no on viewed at the György Ráth Villa in fully return original paintings experience.

Antonio Tempesta’s two-side painting in this exhibition is an exceptional work of art in many respects.

The color of a marvelous shades in blue magnified Antonio Tempesta who was born in Florence and active painter in Rome in the early decades in the 17th century. His works were ordered and prepared for aristocratic patrons. Tempesta painted on various types of stones, bringing life without boundaries to figures and venues with its original color of the stone, showing the perfect collaboration between nature and art.

While most paintings are done on canvas or wood panels, Tempesta used a semi-precious stone, lapis lazuli   to his painting. This rare stone was imported from Afghanistan, the only known location of such deposits in the 17th century. Both sides of this thin, unbelievable  1-millimeter thick translucent slab presents scenes on both side from the Old Testament. The images are not just paintings, but from the multicolor stone forming an intergral part of the depictions. The frame itself with its mother-of-pearls inlays, is also unusual of its complicated, contrived image field.

The stone’s name Lapis Lazuli comes from Latin word „lapis” meaning „stone” and the Persian lazhward meaning „blue” It is one of the most sought after stones in use since man’s history began.

Only three of Lapis Lazuli stones survived around the world throughout the centuries. One of the Tempesta’s works can be viewed at the György Ráth Villa – Budapest and are housed in the Louvre – Paris and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

Certainly recommend this wonderful place to  visit by art lovers, once home to a wealthy family, and today a gem of a museum in Budapest. The exhibition rolls back in the past under the spell of the magnificent objects.

Whilst walking in-and-around the corridors and rooms  can  see besides Tempesta’s painting a couple of goldsmith works out on display. These magnificent artistic works are examples how the fusion of an object brought together with nature. The goldsmith works are from the former collection of Miklós Jankovich, a renowned Hungarian art collector of the early 19th century.

Mind you, there are no guided tours, yet there is a booklet on the front desk that summaries the story of the villa.

Take your time to see, learn about the background of entire collection whilst enjoy stepping into every room of the villa unique piece of furniture and decor. A very unique and special museum!

Transparent Sound New Music Festival @ Budapest

The highlight of the festival is the work of female music composers.

January, 7 – 20. 2020.

Does female and male music really exist? Do these only consist of female or male sounds? Is there a difference between men listening to the music of female composers and women listening to music composed by men? Is it possible to compose accompaniment to a concerto using insect sounds? And to lead a soloist of electroacoustic instruments with hand-gestures? To tell a story with beatbox sounds? Is there a musical work that has two versions, which can be performed both separately and together? How can we describe generative art, and how does it relate to gender?

The outstanding events are at prominent venues for those interested in new music and can visit as many venues as they wish, such as: the Müpa, the Trafó, the Music Academy and the French Institute in Budapest.

There is still a week ahead at the festival will include concerts – paired with interactive introductory sessions, – workshops for professionals and the public, children’s events, an international symposium, a sound-theater for the whole family, an exhibition and movie screenings. This year the festival will focus particularly on the works and performances of female musicians and composers.

The main mission of the festival is to make the colorful and innovative world of new music approachable for everyone. The invitation also goes to the audience who wish to join the open workshops organized around the events, which will lead participants empirically into the instinctive world of music listening and orientation. The scores of the performed works will also be made available during the festival in our reading corner in the library of the BMC – Budapest Music Center.

LONGLEASH – PAYSAGES – CURATOR: ADAM MCCARTNEY

January, 16. – 6 p.m. – CEU, Oktober Hall – District, V., 7. Október 6 Street. A forest makes sounds of its own — remarkable sounds. Perhaps these sounds also mark the breadth, depth and borders of the forest space itself. There are also other sounds that signify “forest,” and yet other more enigmatic sounds that express embodied experiences, interactions and intensities between human and forest bodies.

Exhibition opening – Vernissage and lecture by Étienne Rolin

January, 17. – 5 p.m. – French Institute – District, I., 17. Fő Street . Étienne Rolin about the vanishing points of music and visual arts says the following: Q.: “What is the connection between music and painting. In a nutshell, I give a sweeping answer that both disciplines are two variations of vibrations produced by gestures. Each discipline has its particular techniques and materials that allow me to create. What I find stimulating is to experiment with my own brain and body to examine and cross-examine the ongoing process of creative activity in two domains. It appears obvious to most that music and painting share a common ground with a deep taste for the technique of composition and the art of improvisation.
