During the very short period (133 days) of the Hungarian Soviet Republic, the progressive and modern tendencies in art and literature became apparent, and dominated the cultural policy. In fact, the modern and progressive Hungarian intelligentsia supported the new regime unanimously.

Gyorgy (Georg) Lukacs, the important philosopher and writer, was a central figure in the cultural policy: he became Commissar for Education and Culture. In that position, he controlled most cultural matters. He was also a member of the Directory of Theatre, where the famous writer, aesthete and film critic, Bela Balazs (born Herbert Bauer) was working as well. The Directory of Film was led by Sándor (Alexander) Korda, who later built his career as a film director in Hollywood. In the Directory of Art, most of the modernist artists became members: Robert Bereny (the young painter of Nyolcak (The Eight), Beni Ferenczy (a famous sculptor), Lajos Kozma (architect and designer). The Directory of Music was responsible for the high standards of musical life, and was led by world-famous composers: Bela Bartok, Erno Dohnanyi and Zoltan Kodaly. The Writers Directory was also under the governance of Lukacs, who worked with most of the writers of Nyugat, the most prominent cultural journal of the time. Lajos Kassak (avant-garde painter, graphic artist and writer) was working at the Propaganda Department.
