The National Museum of Hungary (MNM) won the grand prize and a gold medal at a multimedia festival organised in Shanghai by AVICOM, the international committee for audiovisual and new image and sound technologies, a body of the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
Currently, several Chinese museums and Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts own such interactive surfaces.
The MNM’s documentary on a memorial to forced labour in the communist era, Hungarian National Museum Malenkij Robot Memorial Place, won the gold medal in its category.
The open-air museum in Szentendre, near Budapest, was awarded silver medals for the short film I’m from Hungary and the documentary Hand/Craft/Art. The Petofi Museum of literature won a bronze medal for its exhibition dubbed CSATH* The sorcerer’s garden.
