XY - HUMAN DIGNITY AND THE MOME GENERATION

October 19, 2012 - November 4, 2012.
ÁCS Alíz Veronika: Witch, 2012
“THERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS UNTOUCHABLE IN ALL OF US. THIS SOMETHING IS UNRELATED TO COUNTRIES, REGIMES AND EVEN TO PEOPLE. IT SPRINGS FROM LIFE ITSELF. FROM THE UNIQUE, INIMITABLE EXPRESSION OF HUMAN EXISTENCE. WE CAN COMPREHEND IT ONLY IN OURSELVES. ONCE AND FOR ALL. AS LIFE TURNS INTO EXISTENCE, THE PARTICULAR INTO UNIVERSAL, AND THE CONTINGENT INTO THE NECESSARY. AS WE STRIVE FOR PERFECTION. FOR THE UNREACHABLE. TRYING TO REACH IT IN OTHERS. IN EVERYONE.”
Gábor Kopek, rector

Most constitutions refer to human dignity as a fundamental, inalienable right. Today human dignity is just a right. But if it is only a plain right, it can be taken away. Maintaining our human dignity plays a crucial role in our social existence. Every age and every social order is shaped partly by its respective interpretation of the concept of human dignity and by the behavioral patterns corresponding to each interpretation.

Launched by the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, MOME Laboratory is a trademark program to promote integrative thinking and the appreciation of the contemporary scene. MOME Laboratory’s upcoming exhibition will allow the opportunity to former students and their fellow-artists who graduated from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest in the 21st century to introduce themselves by interpreting the notion of human dignity. At least 40 photographers will present more than 100 works of arts.
