183. Contemporary Art in Budapest

A visit to the Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art - the museum focuses on Eastern and Central European art with an emphasis on presenting Hungarian art from the 1960s to the present day.

The massive building is indeed an example of contemporary art in itself - with wonderful negative spaces taking the visitor on a relaxing journey over three floors of avant-garde art.

I like a gallery that has windows looking out onto a moving scene -
- this gives the eyes a new focus and the senses a rest from the art within ... 
in this case I am looking across the Ziggurat to the Danube ...

... and across to the National Theatre for the Performing Arts ...
