20 Jul

László Moholy-Nagy, the great intellectual and technical innovator and world-famous Hungarian artist was born on July 20, 125 years ago. His oeuvre is well known in many countries around the world, his works are auctioned at record prices and have been exhibited in recent years in the largest museums in London, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles attracting huge audiences. However, few are aware of the roots of this decisive, experimental, innovative creator of the 20th century, namely that he was Hungarian.

On this occasion, the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME) pays tribute to the timeless validity of Moholy-Nagy's ideas by releasing an audiovisual package online together with the „Moholy-Nagy 125” report film, by MOHOLYMOTION, a 125-second animation, dozens of interviews and video messages, as well as an interactive website (moholy-nagy.mome.hu).
