“I still believe in personal interaction”– Interview with Erika Deák„Én még mindig a személyes érintkezésben hiszek”– Interjú Deák Erikával
“I still believe in personal interaction,” says Erika Deák, who emphasises live conversations and exhibition experiences over the expanding virtual world. We talked about online culture, art criticism in Hungary, the role of education, the prospects for young people and also about the scholarship programme she has been running since 2020 to support a student at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design every year.

The FRUSKA education programme is directed at one of the most vulnerable social groups, providing multi-level learning experiences to teenage girls from disadvantaged backgrounds. At the sessions, they not only learn how to use the jigsaw, but also gain design skills and confidence through the process of creating various items. The methodology developed by the Social Design Hub of the MOME Innovation Center is now available to everyone.
