In the spring semester of the academic year 2018/19, students of the Media Design BA program of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest dealt with the memory of Robert Capa, the world-renowned war correspondent of Hungarian descent and the contemporary challenges of photojournalism and documentarism through the study of a radio interview with the photographer.  The 1947 sound recording was extraordinary when it first appeared, as it was the first time the public could hear the voice of a photojournalist, but it has since been the only radio interview known with him. In the 23-minute recording, Capa talks about his then-released book, his life, and his adventures.  Noémi Fábián and Attila Pálfalusi, MOME instructors, shared the interview with their students as a starting point and asked them to interpret the audio, find free associations, and search for current contexts using media design tools.  The pieces thus produced are reflections of a young generation, which had never experienced war, on Bob Capa’s experiences, photojournalistic work and the role of media in our lives in general.
