One of the most important events in the life of nearly 250 students will take place shortly. The diploma defences will be held between 5 and 21 June, and like in previous years, many of them will be open to the public. The Diploma Exhibition of masterworks will be on display on 17 and 18 June at several locations across the Campus. Once again, MOME’s graduation ceremony will feature world-renowned creative professionals and artists whose career and oeuvre can serve as a model for students.

The MOME Graduation event series includes several major activities, from the portrait photo shoot setting the mood for the coming month, to the diploma award ceremony.

Each year, a student or group of students is selected, based on their entries submitted, to develop a concept for and shoot the portrait photos of graduating students and design the visual identity for the graduation. This year, the graphic design was created by Graphic Design MA student Ágnes Petrucz, and the photographic works were completed by Csenge Petri and Márk Szabó (Photography BA). 

These will appear in various platforms, such as social media, the graduation ceremony, and the online interface showcasing each graduating student complete with an archive including all MOME graduating student portrait photos, thesis, and masterwork abstract, as well as graduation visual identities since 2008. 

The public MA diploma defences, taking place at three university locations over a period of two weeks, will involve students presenting their completed masterworks to the examination committee. The detailed schedule for each MA programme with the dates, times, and venues, as well as information about the exhibition will be available on a graduation-related subsite. 

Following completion of the diploma defences, a two-day exhibition with masterworks, as well as students designs and concepts by MA students from all four institutes – Architecture, Design, Media, and Theoretical Studies – ranging from prototypes through mock-ups to visual designs will be shown at various locations around the Zugligeti út Campus. 

The event series will conclude with the graduation ceremony, providing graduating students with takeaway and inspiration for the future. Once again, the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is inviting prominent and internationally acclaimed creative industry professionals to speak. This year, the BA diploma ceremony will feature Academy Award winning film director of Hungarian descent Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, and the MA diploma ceremony Paola Antonelli, world-famous architect, Senior Curator and Director of Research and Development at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.  For more information...
