Bocskor, Boot, Paduka – Adventures in Footwear

Budapest, Néprajzi Múzeum, 05 March 2017 - 30 November 2017
The exhibition explores the rich variety of times, places, uses, and meanings an ethnographic artefact can represent by considering an array of objects of a single type: footwear.
Spanning a range of styles from the Carpathian Basin, Europe, and elsewhere and a time period of nearly two hundred years, it is an invitation to adventure – to meticulous observation of cultures near and far. Here, lifted from the contexts of the overall costume and the role of mere accessory, footwear takes centre stage. The material has been arranged in terms not of chronology or region, but of setting – of ordinary days and special occasions – starting with an introductory discussion of the title styles (bocskor, boot, paduka), followed by a room dedicated to the naked foot, and finally, the bulk of the exhibition, its two main categories subdivided along considerations of climate, geographic and man-made environment, lifestyle, religion, gender, and age group. Some of the artefacts on display come supplied with ample original information on the specific circumstances of their manufacture and use; for most, however, identification has necessarily relied on reference to the professional literature and other, analogous material.
