Budapest is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its unification in 2023. On this occasion, the Graphic Design BA programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and its Illustration specialisation invited students of the German Hochschule Anhalt and the Czech UMPRUM design universities to work together on creating stunning touristic posters.
The Budapest Design Week has been bringing together design professionals and enthusiast of the capital in mid-October for 20 years with exciting events. As part of these, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design once again presents a selection of diploma projects by freshly graduated MA students, this time downtown, off the University Campus.
“We are living in a time when recognition appears to be more important than anything else. More and more people are becoming known for unknown reasons. Andy Warhol's statement about 15 minutes of fame is taken to the extreme. The world of design has caught the Kardashian virus too. We, including myself, are being caught between recognition and purpose. Unfortunately, more and more often, recognition becomes a purpose in and of itself. The lecture is about my attempt to do the opposite: to use my recognition for a purpose.”
