Krištof Kintera, who was born in 1973 in Prague, is one of the most significant artists working today. His oeuvre includes sculpture, assemblages and installations, in which he decidedly – and often humorously – gets to grips with contemporary subjects. Switching between the apparently trivial and the deadly serious, his creations contain a lively criticism of hyper-capitalist systems and the ecological questions resulting from them. Kintera’s works are represented in several important collections and have been exhibited throughout the world, including in La Galleria Nazionale in Rome, the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo, Museum Tinguely in Basel, Haus der Kunst in Munich and in galleries and museums in New York, Sydney, Prague and Berlin.
