Power of Hungary’s conservative art Academy grows

Opponents disrupt meeting of influential right-wing group
Around a dozen protesters managed to crash the general assembly meeting of the Hungarian Academy of Arts (MMA) on 15 December. The Academy is an ultra conservative artists’ association funded by the Hungarian right-wing government of Viktor Orban. The activists took the stage, unfurling a banner that read: “The MMA is exclusive, art is free.” Hungarian media reported a violent struggle with security forces as the group was led out of the meeting.
