The first Artists’ Camp organized by Mr. Ari Kupsus was set-up at the historical Amadé-Bajzáth-Pappenheim castle which stands in the picturesque village of Iszkaszentgyörgy. The village of 1,800 inhabitants is located next to Székesfehérvár, at the foot of Iszka Hill which is part of the Bakony mountains. The area has been inhabited for many centuries and was first mentioned in documents in 1193. There were three villages on its area in the Middle Ages: Iszka, Szentgyörgy and Atya. Since 1590 the area has been called Iszkaszentgyörgy (Saint George of Iszka). A legend is attached to the name Szentgyörgy: Saint George defeated the dragon which terrorized the region at the road to Fehérvár. The village is rich in historic relics. Besides agriculture and forestry, handicraft also flourished. There area is also well known for its wines.

The Amadé-Bajzáth-Pappenheim castle was first mentioned in documents in 1735. The first part of the castle complex was built up the same year by the Amadé-family. The visit to the castle and its parks is a journey in the history of art, including all styles from Baroque to the neo-Baroque of the early 20th century. Other spectular sights of the village are the Calvinist and Roman Catholic churches.

It is  believed that this historical building together with the romantic remnants of its formerly glorious English and French baroque gardens inspire artists. The camp offers a great opportunity to work and enjoy the beautiful Hungarian landscape and create arts  together with international artists from all over Europe.

From these donated works some will be donated in turn to the village of Iszkaszentgyörgy to create a special contemporary art collection for the inhabitants of the village.

This exhibition opening will be part of the celebrations of inauguration of the Finnish museum opened by H.E. President of Republic of Finland, Mr Sauli Niinistö  on the same day at 4 p.m.

The exhibition opening will be followed by the contemporary dance show in the garden of the castle, choreography by Ms. Rita Gobi  with her dance group.
