Several MOME intermedia and art theory projects were among the winners of the Art and Art Theory Section of the National Scientific Students' Associations Conference.

The Art and Art Theory Section of the National Scientific Students' Associations Conference took place between 13 and 15 2023 at the ELTE Institute of Arts Communication and Music. The six MOME contenders were MA students Zsófia Kérdy, Éva Szabó and Petra Andrea Pilbák from the Graphic Design programme, Sándor Őze from the Design Theory programme, Virág Tajti from the Media Design programme, and Anna Tőkés from the Animation programme.  
Post Tai chi, garden without a gardener by Zsófia Kérdi was awarded first prize of the Intermedia section. Created with Mrs. Pintér née Beáta Sosity and Antal Lakner acting as supervisors, the speculative design project explores the impact of overpopulation and climate change on the mental health of people in the Anthropocene age, and the therapeutic effects of garden on mental health. Its goal was to develop an exercise routine that can help experience the beneficial effects of garden activities event without access to a garden. Post Tai chi is a tai chi kata that requires no natural setting or a garden, only reliance on muscle memory from previous gardening works. The exercises were showcased by the film included in the project. 
Virág Tajti’s project Exercise book was also featured in the Intermedia section, earning her third place. 
Postmodern object design in Hungary in the context of mass industry transformation by Sándor Őze won second place, and Anna Tőkés’s The potential effect of sports films on the perception and working of the particular sport the jury’s special prize.
