SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

House of Terror

House of Terror is a museum located at Andrássy út 60 in Budapest, Hungary. It contains exhibits related to the fascist and communist regimes in 20th-century Hungary and is a memorial to the victims of these regimes, including those detained, tortured or killed in the building; the museum opened on 24 February 2002 and the Director-General of the museum since has been Dr Mária Schmidt. The House of Terror is a member organization of the Platform of European Conscience. Visitors including Zbigniew Brzezinski, Francis Fukuyama and Hayden White have praised the Museum; the building was used by the Arrow Cross Party and ÁVH. The museum was set up under the centre-right government of Viktor Orbán. In December 2000 the Public Foundation for the Research of Central and East European History and Society purchased the building with the aim of establishing a museum in order to commemorate these two bloody periods of Hungarian history. During the year-long construction work, the building was renovated inside and out.

The internal design, the final look of the museum's exhibition hall, the external facade are all the work of architect Attila F. Kovács; the reconstruction plans for the House of Terror Museum were designed by architects János Sándor and Kálmán Újszászy. The reconstruction turned the exterior of the building into somewhat of a monument. Inside the building, the Museum has a T-54 tank on display. With regard to communism and fascism, the exhibition contains material on the nation's relationships to Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, it contains exhibits related to Hungarian organisations such as the fascist Arrow Cross Party and the communist ÁVH. Part of the exhibition takes visitors to the basement, where they can see examples of the cells that the ÁVH used to break the will of their prisoners. Much of the information and the exhibits are in Hungarian, although each room has an extensive information sheet in both English and Hungarian. Audio guides in English and German are available; the background music to the exhibition was composed by former Bonanza Banzai frontman and producer Ákos Kovács.

The scoring includes the work of a string orchestra, special stereophonic mixes, sound effects. Visitors may not use video cameras inside of the building. There is no reduced fee for ICOM members; some historians and political scientists such as Magdalena Marsovszky or Ilse Huber have argued that the museum portrays Hungary too much as the victim of foreign occupiers and does not recognise enough the contribution that Hungarians themselves made to the regimes in question as well. Criticism has been raised that far more space is given to the terror of the communist regime than the fascist one. One answer to these criticisms was that while the German occupation and fascist regime of Ferenc Szálasi lasted less than a year, the Hungarian Communist regime lasted for 40 years; the museologists of the museum reminded critics that the Hungarian Holocaust has its own museum, within a kilometre distance, so there is no need to repeat its content.

World of Music, Arts and Dance

WOMAD is an international arts festival. The central aim of WOMAD is to celebrate the world's many forms of music and dance. WOMAD was founded in 1980 by English rock musician Peter Gabriel, with Thomas Brooman, Bob Hooton, Mark Kidel, Stephen Pritchard, Martin Elbourne and Jonathan Arthur. Original designers were Valerie Hawthorn; the first WOMAD festival was in Shepton Mallet, UK in 1982. The audience saw Peter Gabriel, Don Cherry, The Beat, Drummers of Burundi, Echo & The Bunnymen, Imrat Khan, Prince Nico Mbarga, Simple Minds, Suns of Arqa, The Chieftains and Ekome National Dance Company, founded by Barrington, Angie and Lorna Anderson, the pioneering African arts company in the UK amongst others performing. Gabriel and his company, which had funded WOMAD, faced financial ruin from high costs of the festival in its first year, worsened by the lack of suitable transport to the venue and a lack of publicity. At the suggestion of Tony Smith, the manager of Gabriel and Genesis, he and the remaining members of Genesis agreed to play together for a single show under the name'Six of the Best' at Milton Keynes.

This performance included a dynamic inclusion of Ekome National Dance Company, fusing live African Drum on Peter Gabriel's track'Rhythm Of The Heat'. The show made it possible for further WOMAD events to take place. Since 1982, WOMAD Festivals have travelled all over the world, bringing artists to numerous locations and entertaining over one million people; the main UK event was held at Rivermead in Reading, from 1990 until 2006. In 2017 WOMAD UK marked its 35th anniversary. Headliners Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra and The Maytals, Roy Ayers, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 along with 30 other artists performed for a record-setting audience for the festival of 10,000 people. A double album was released in 1982, it features the Drummers of Burundi, Peter Gabriel, Pete Townsend, Bill Lovelady, Holger Czukay, among other notable performers. This album antedated Paul Simon's Graceland by 4 years. From the outset, the WOMAD name has reflected the festival’s idea. WOMAD has always presented music that they felt to be of excellence and individuality, regardless of musical genre or geographical origin.

WOMAD encourages collaboration amongst the artists. The first WOMAD Festival in 1982 had Echo and the Bunnymen join forces with the Drummers of Burundi, WOMAD Abu Dhabi 2010, saw a collaboration between Tinariwen, TV on the Radio members Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe, Grammy-winning producer Ian Brennan, the French Algerian Mehdi from Speed Caravan. Workshops. Adult workshops are taken by the musicians and will involve dance, musical instruments and discussions. Children's workshops involve painting, circus skills, modelling, story telling and more. Taste The World. Musicians cook a choice of dish from their home country in front of an audience. Global Market; the Global Market sells wares. WOMAD in the UK takes place in the grounds of a stately home in Wiltshire; the arena holds at least 5 main stages with a further one in the Arboretum. An old fashioned steam fair, global market, children's area, wellbeing section is found on the WOMAD UK festival site. WOMAD Charlton Park falls on the last complete weekend in July.

WOMAD came to Bristol Zoo in 2011, with a subsequent event in 2012. A boycott of the 2012 event was called for by the Captive Animals Protection Society because of concerns that noise from the festival could affect the animals' welfare.
