FROM KATALIN KESERÜ’S VIEWPOINT
The Makovecz Centre and Archives presents a series of three lectures, showcasing one of Imre Makovecz’s most exciting studies: He strove to find the core elements of architecture by examining human motions – an approach unknown in architecture until then.
About the Motion Forms Experiment
by Keserü Katalin, Munkácsy Award winner art historian:
“In search of the basic elements of architecture, I obeyed my inclinations and turned to anthropomorphic directions, starting to examine human motions which equally include body and soul, space and time. With the help of Gerle and Sáros, I devised analogies for motions in certain basic situations. It was not easy, since I categorically wanted to avoid cheating myself…” wrote Imre Makovecz in the foreword to the experiment titled Motion Forms.
The three lectures approach the Motion Forms Experiment from three viewpoints.
Throughout the lecture series, a small exhibition will also be held about the Motion Form experiments.
