Sandor Bartha

Sandor Bartha

b. 1962, Odorheiu-Secuiesc, Romania
Lives and works in Budapest, Hungary

The artistic practice of Sandor Bartha conveys personal messages with a political, ironical twist on the current state of things on a national or international level, through playful, clever and skilful strategies. His works combine different media, such as drawing, painting, installation or photography, and have been shown in the Prague Biennial (2003), in the Romanian Pavilion at The Venice Biennale (2001) and in exhibitions at the Ludwig Museum (Budapest, 2003), Kulturkontakt (Vienna, 1997 with an adjacent artistic residency program). In 2006 he was granted a residency in Hamburg by the Hamburg Kulturbehörde and in 2002 he received a grant from the ECF (European Cultural Foundation) inside the ID (Intercultural Dialogue) residency-program Kassel. He teaches at the Art Faculty of the Partium University in Oradea, Romania.
