MOME also featured at the INOTA Festival, one of the most exciting events of the summer

Date: 2023.09.07
Summer came to an end with a truly unique event held in the buildings of the Inota Thermal Power Plant in Várpalota. The INOTA - Audiovisual Festival at the power plant event series had several MOME affiliations, as collected below.

The first INOTA Festival took place between 31 August and 3 September as part of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture programme. It was mostly the unique location – the three iconic cooling towers of the inoperational Inota Thermal Power Plant – that made the event a must-see, though the musical acts were at least as exciting. 

In addition to the lineup, the visual effects were a major focus with light installations, mappings and other contemporary visual artworks, including VACUUM II, a spatial installation by former MOME Media Design student Besnyő Dániel created together with two of his fellow artists, the diploma project by Fanni Hegyi who graduated from the Architecture BA in 2020, and FOR. 

X NIMOVA PROJECT, an experimental musical project by Ábris Gryllus, who graduated from the Graphic Design MA, and is currently studying at the MOME Doctoral School. 

The organisers of the grand event series were supported by graduates of the Art and Design Management MA class of 2023 Ábel Djogni and Apollónia Molnár, and current students of the Art and Design Management MA programme Bianka Faddi and Lilla Turjányi.

MOME students triumphed at the Red Dot Design Awards, often referred to as the "Oscars of the design world" with revolutionary concepts including a hybrid tram, a modular pram, an innovative VR headset for home workouts, and a stretcher designed for rough terrains. These award-winning projects were developed under the new preparatory programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, whose success is demonstrated by five out of twelve submissions receiving accolades.

It is a long-standing tradition of our University to entrust designing the visual identity of the MOME Diploma, from graphic design to the portrait photography of BA and MA students, to students through a competition. The annually refreshed concept thus reflects the university community from within, creating an important snapshot of the times and a unique keepsake for each graduating year.

Ten teams have embarked on an exciting journey with mentors from MOME, with several projects focusing on space-based plant cultivation and creating new habitats as alternatives to a lost Earth. The 2024 edition of the “Jump into the Future!" competition for 7th to 10th graders revolves around the theme of space. The second round is already underway, and the expanded jury had a challenging task putting together a shortlist from 52 entries by highly committed students from across the country.
