Art and design projects on the lakeshore: the products of the MOME and BALATORIUM collaboration will be presented over the weekend

Date: 2023.08.20
The BALATORIUM event series, implemented as part of the European Capital of Culture 2023 programme, was designed to showcase and raise awareness of the ecological challenges of the largest lake in Hungary and Central Europe in an unusual setting, using the toolset of Gesamtkunst and education, with heavy involvement from MOME. The Ecology x Cultural Week will take place on 26 and 27 August on the public beach in Örvényes, with workshops and an exhibition opening by MOME.

The BALATORIUM initiative was launched to raise awareness of the current ecological issues affecting the Balaton and its surroundings. MOME joined in autumn 2021 with a complex education programme aimed at increasing the sensitivity of the 14-18 age group to the subject using the tools of art and design. 

As part of the Balatorium Ecology x Cultural Week, MOME will present the outcomes of the relevant project package of the past two years at the Foliorium Pavilon on the public beach in Örvényes and nearby towns over the last weekend of August.  

This will include the testing of the SAVE THE LAKE collaborative board game with the MOME students involved in the development, presentation of the works created by MOME students over the previous semester as part of the Ecological Data Visualisation Course, and the creation of an interactive audioreactive installation visualising the aquatic microflora of Lake Balaton on the Foliorium Pavilon. 

The detailed event schedule of the 26 and 27 August weekend is available in the Facebook event at
