MODEM, Debrecen

Founded in 2006, the MODEM Centre for Modern and Contemporary Art in Debrecen is one of the most well equiped infrastructural facilities with the largest contiguous exhibition space in Central-Eastern Europe.

MODEM is a cultural institution with international connections, which has two main missions: the exhibition of the most significant 20th century Hungarian and international works of art, and the representative presentation of the current schools and progressive efforts of the contemporary visual art and culture as well as most respected Hungarian and international artists.

For years, MODEM has given importance to supporting emerging artists through exhibitions and professional programmes, such as the MODEM Prize, which was awarded in 2018 and 2022 to emerging Hungarian artists within the first five years of their degree. During Budapest Contemporary, MODEM will present the works of the last four winners of the award, Dávid Bíró, Máté Dobokay, Dorottya Szonja Koltay and Judit Flóra Schuller.

In addition to the exhibition, the presentation of MODEM's publication work will also play an important role. During the fair, the professional publications of the institution will be available.
