DESCRIPTION

Andreas Fogarasi (Vienna, 1977) uses forms of display that are reminiscent of minimalism and conceptual art to investigate history’s layers of sedimentation in a work that fuses the past and present in the same time. Incorporating video, sculpture and installation in wide-sweeping discursive webs, Fogarasi presents the contradictions in the cultural policies of the communist states in Eastern Europe and their rapid conversion to late capitalism, which erased all traces of their existence.
