MOME successes at the 24th Graphic Design Biennale

Date: 2024.03.19
The 24th Graphic Design Biennale took place in early March at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, with exhibitions by various students and teachers from the MOME Graphic Design BA and MA programmes.

Launched in 1978, the biennale is an exhibition series of Hungarian graphic design art in Hungary, aiming to showcase the global evolution, new values, and generations of graphic design styles. The Moholy-Nagy Award was presented at the event for the first time for the artwork best embodying Moholy-Nagy’s ethos, and went to Zoltán Visnyai. 

Honorary university professor Gábor Palotai received a György Konecsni Lifetime Achievement Award, while DE_FORM won the Ministry for Culture and Innovation award. The prize of the Hungarian Academy of Arts was awarded to Oszkár Boskovitz who graduated from MOME’s predecessor, the Hungarian University of Applied Arts. The awards jury included MOME associate professor Dóra Balla, and the selection jury MOME doctoral student and lecturer Petra Pilbák and MOME alumna Anna Bárdy.
