Kitti Gosztola (H)
13. 9. 2019 – 13. 11. 2019
The works of Kitti Gosztola focus on the construction and politics of natural sciences, while being informed by a conviction that art's social and sensual dimensions are not a zero sum game. Her activities range from tackling craftsmanship and materialities through works based on archival research to projects focusing on socio-political issues. From re-interpreting the techniques of cow appendix membranes once used in Zeppelins through re-evaluating invasive species with participants outside the artworld to a long-running investigation into Hungary’s marine imaginations.
