Our Photography MA programme trains open-minded and highly autonomous artists who are able to respond sensitively and progressively to the challenges of the world, supported by state-of-the-art technology and renowned teachers.
This long-standing programme covers the development and full-spectrum implementation of long-term photography projects; design and art research; the development of the Central and Eastern European vision of the genre; and the exploration of its intersections.
Thanks to their solid knowledge and skills, artists graduating from our programme can hold their own in the international photography arena. We place a strong emphasis on collaborations with professional partners, and the successful participation of our students in international and domestic competitions, fairs and festivals.

At the Best of MOME ‘23, this year’s top MA diploma projects from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design made their debut on 14 October at the Kastner Kommunity. The event highlighted the questions and issues that occupy the minds of the youngest generation of designers and the various design responses to them.

The Budapest Photo Festival, taking place for the 7th time in 2023, presents contemporary and classical Hungarian and global photography, including captivating international star exhibitions, a contemporary Hungarian overview, and various photo exhibitions by museums and galleries in Budapest as well as foreign cultural institutions. Once again, the MOME Photography programme played a key role in the event series. The exhibitions that are still running are described below.

The invited speakers for the spring semester of the Photography MA explore the possibilities of the responsible use of photography in light of the challenges posed by the post-photographic era. Their work serves as inspirational examples for further interpretations of art-related interdisciplinary research.
