Peter Bartoš

Situations 1945–2014

November 21, 2014 – January 25, 2015

Peter Bartoš was an early exponent of conceptual and action art in Slovakia. In Situations 1945–2014, his exhibition at the Secession, he has put together a first-ever survey of his multifaceted oeuvre in the form of a chronological xerographic catalogue raisonné. In a perspective schooled by anti-art, Bartoš regards the photocopy as both a work in itself and a medium that lets him record and distribute his concepts.
