MOME student on the shortlist for the Paris Photo Carte Blanche Students Award

Date: 2022.07.21
Anna Franciska Legát, former MOME BA and current MA Photography student, made the shortlist for the award of the prestigious international photo fair for her series Hellish Eden.

The Paris Photo Carte Blanche Students Award offers a platform for the discovery and promotion of emerging young photographers with outstanding talent. The four winners will be selected from among over 100 European photography and visual arts schools, with the opportunity to take part in the Paris Photo, the world’s largest international art fair for photography, between 10 and 13 November at the Grand Palais. The winning projects will also be featured in an exhibition from mid-October through the end of November at the Gare du Nord railway station in Paris. 
In her series Hellish Eden, Anna Franciska Legát illustrates the absurdity of socialism in the 70s and 80s. Based on her parents’ recollections, she captures fictional situations in a documentary approach, pointing out the subjectivity of the past and the diversity of the many different possible narratives.  
 
Selected from among over 200 entries from nine European arts universities, her project was even included in the biennial international photography talent programme of the Dutch BredaPhoto Festival back in June. Her and the other 8 shortlisted artists’ photos will be on display at a grand exhibition at the BredaPhoto Festival from 8 September.

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.
