The visit of MOME’s International Advisory Board

Date: 2022.11.16
Members of the International Advisory Board supporting MOME’s work since September 2022 paid our university a visit. During their visit, the five acclaimed professionals gained a better understanding of the workings and people of our institution and got a glimpse into the utilisation of László Moholy-Nagy’s legacy in practice and the restructuring of our BA and MA programmes.

They are actively involved in reforming MOME’s training model, and develop live contacts with our university’s professional workshops and students, and the visit represented the first step in these processes. They will continue to support MOME’s work regularly with feedback and advice in the future. 

Cultural strategist András Szántó, who has been helping with the reorganisation of the university from the start, was invited by the MOME Foundation to lead the board. Szántó is a strategist who has been living in the USA for decades and is credited with reinventing institutions and brands such as Art Basel and the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, a Stanford University or the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars

Other members include Professor Ulrich Weinberg, head of the Hasso-Plattner-Institut in Potsdam, Zuzanna Skalska, co-founder of the School of Form in Warsaw and a truly versatile creative industry entrepreneur, and Aric Chen, professor at the Design and Innovation Department of the Tongji University in Shanghai and Artistic Director of the Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam.  

Since it was an important requirement to ensure representation of the MOME alumni community in the board, it is provided by Györgyi Gálik who is City Transitions Co-Lead at Dark Matter Lab and Head of Strategic Partnerships at the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. After obtaining two MA degrees from MOME, she received an PhD from the Royal College of Art in Innovation Design Engineering.
