In his spatial work, typographical studies and architectural analyses, Andreas Fogarasi investigates the institutional parameters of a geographical and political space and challenges its cultural representations. By doing so, he persistently investigates developments and changes in urban spaces and the conditions of their perception. This permanent artistic work of transformation produces unusual spatial, formal and structural models. In 2007, Andreas Fogarasi was awarded the Golden Lion for his contribution to the Hungarian pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
In his exhibition at the MAK Gallery, the artist subjects the concept of modernity and the related temporality to an in-depth study, using photographs of e.g. the Pacific Design Center in L.A. or the Paris Auto Salon.
