The official historical narrative of the Orbán regime has identified the scapegoat responsible for the collapse and dissolution of the Hungarian Kingdom in the 1918 Aster Revolution and the 1919 Hungarian Soviet Republic. The same discourse, by a false analogy, claims that nowadays once again it is just the virtual “Communists,” a handful of anti-national fanatics, who oppose Orbán’s rule. Against the background of similar falsifications and attempts at demonization, this exhibition endeavors to show the events that occurred in Hungary in 1918–1919 in their real domestic and international context. In doing so, it hopes to shed light on those still unsettled traumas of the age, which could never become mere history in Hungarian collective remembrance.
