Kitti Gosztola

I mainly 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. Thus my 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.
