Biography

Preoccupied by representations of place, power and identity in public space.
Andreas Fogarasi's work comments the dissimulated way by which the State defines and regulates behaviour within its borders. His critical process imposes a discourse that peels away the layers of convention and pre-conceived ideas that surround his subject, at which point he can then re-build, re-assemble, associate and repeat, to a point where his minimalist works quietly question our surroundings and behavioural patterns, leading us to the inevitable question of civil liberties. Through his work, Andreas Fogarasi observes the city and its codes of representation. His projects are witness of the interest he has in the collective and utopic dimension of architecture, and its sometimes authoritarian characteristics. He also comments the appropriation of these areas and symbols by the people. It is a critical look at modernism and politics of the masses.


Born in Austria in 1977, Andreas Fogarasi lives and works in Vienna. After studying architecture, he decided to further his studies at the Fine Art School in Vienna fallowing a residency at the Pavillon, Palais de Tokyo during 2002-2003. He participated at Manifesta in Frankfurt in 2002, then went on to win the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale in 2007 for the best National Representation with his project Kultur und Freizeit in the Hungarian Pavillon.
