Andreas Fogarasi Austrian, b. 1977

Born in Austria in 1977

Lives and works in Vienna. 

 

Andreas Fogarasi uses forms of display that are reminiscent of minimalism and conceptual art to explore questions of space and representation. Being situated between a documentary and a sculptural practice, his works critically analyse the aesthetisation and economisation of urban space and the role of architecture and the cultural field in contemporary society. Incorporating video, sculpture and installation in wide-sweeping discursive webs, Fogarasi confronts the viewer with fault lines in history, image politics and cultural identities. 


His work has been shown in numerous international institutions, among others at Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; MUMOK, Vienna; New Museum, New York; Kunstverein Düsseldorf; Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb; CAC, Vilnius; Ludwig Museum, Budapest; Palais de Toyko, Paris. Solo exhibitions include: Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2019); Galerie Thomas Bernard, Paris (2018); Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna (2017); Proyectos Monclova, Mexico City (2016); MAK Center, Los Angeles (with Oscar Tuazon); Galeria Vermelho, Sao Paulo; GfZK – Museum of Contemporary Art, Leipzig; Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich (2014); Trafó Gallery, Budapest; Prefix, Toronto (2012); Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; CAAC – Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Sevilla (2011); Ludwig Forum, Aachen (2010); MAK, Vienna; Grazer Kunstverein, Graz (2008) and at the Hungarian Pavilion at the 52.
