Storytelling in pictures

Date: 2023.11.30
This year’s Photography graduates were not afraid to show a deeply personal side in order to contribute to a social discourse meant to reach a wider public. An exhibition featuring their works opened in Capa Center between 30 August and 26 September.

To bring stories from the future and the past, about family, love, health, truth and lies that are important and must be told – this was the goal set by this year’s Photography graduates. How to tell them right? There is really no recipe for what is the right form, and yet the more personal the tone is, the more disarming our story will be to our audience. The students also used this strategy.

Bianka Cenki created an honest representation of the dynamics of an unusual family relationship. Bálint Gutay's installation, inspired by personal experience, is based on the feelings of an individual exposed to the brutality of social media. Judit Spanyár introduced historical aspects for a more thorough understanding of her family relationships. András Tornóci offered insight behind the scenes of the Hungarian healthcare system during and following the COVID19 pandemic. András Turi examined how Socialist era manipulations of history and high politics interfere with private memory as well.  

The exhibition was opened by Head of the Photography MA programme Gábor Arion Kudász.

Exhibiting photographers: Bianka Csenki, Bálint Gutay, Judit Spanyár, András Tornóci, András Turi

A körforgásos gazdaság talajra gyakorolt hatását mutatta be az Engage4BIO a Pápai Expo és Agrárpikniken. A csapat a Nemzeti Agrárgazdasági Kamarával együttműködve egy interaktív adatvizualizációs táblával vett részt május közepén a kétnapos agrárszakmai eseményen. A program célja az volt, hogy felhívják a figyelmet a talajminőség fenntartásának és javításának kiemelt jelentőségére, valamint a körforgásos biomassza-alapú gazdálkodás talajra gyakorolt pozitív hatására.

Starting out as a geometric model, it evolved into one of the world's most widely known spatial puzzle games. Generations have grown up twisting the sides of the Rubik's Cube, and even today, there are competitions to see who can solve it faster by arranging nine smaller cubes of the same colour on each side without taking it apart. Created by Ernő Rubik at MOME’s predecessor, the Hungarian University of Applied Arts, the Rubik's Cube is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024, while its designer is also celebrating a milestone birthday as he is turning 80 this year.

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.
