MYX – BRG/BORG Lessinggasse

More than a mascot

MYX is a three-dimensional, brightly coloured sculpture that serves as a mascot for the students at the school. It is something of a superbeing that conveys a sense of identity and aims to accompany the youngsters as they navigate school life. It personifies the imagination, humour and lightness that are needed in addition to learning and working. It also stands for the courage to think and create the extraordinary – “outside the box” – and allows a playful approach to mythology, literature and deductive thinking. The name MYX comes from the word “myxa” (Greek for “mucus”,“slime”) and alludes to bodily fluids, which were thought to be the seat of humour in ancient times.
