The awarding of this year’s Deák Erika Grant has taken place

Date: 2022.11.03
The winning entry of Design Theory MA student Brigitta Ádi, this year’s recipient of the Deák Erika Grant, explored the character of urban public spaces through the ephemeral and location-specific artistic interventions of the early 90s.

Since 2020, students of MOME’s Institute for Theoretical Studies can apply for the 1-year grant that specifically helps emerging theoreticians and curators. 

The HUF 500,000 grant is awarded to a senior Design Theory MA or Art and Design Management MA student graduating in the year of submitting the application and selected by a jury of three, consisting of university teachers and professionals.  

For the first time, Erika Deák, founder of the eponymous grant and owner of the Erika Deák contemporary fine art gallery, also participated in the decision-making.  
“I want to help by enabling the new generation of theoreticians and curators to see the big picture in contemporary art instead of getting lost in the details”, she said. 

At her initiative, the grant has been awarded as part of the collaboration to altogether 5 students over 5 years. The aim of the grant is to support one graduating student each year carrying out in-depth research in the field of contemporary art, and to help develop and strengthen the students’ professional attitudes.
