Bálint Szombathy (Paćir, RS, 1950)
Balint Szombathy is a Serbian artist of nomadic and hybrid productions. Because of his origin (Vojvodina) and the area of his artistic activity, he is located at the boundaries of real socialism of the Warsaw Pact, Yugoslav self-management socialism and the liberal West. That, in the matter of life and art, enabled him to act as a nomadic subject between East and West. His practice includes a wide range of artistic activities, from Visual Poetry, Processual Art, Land Art, Performance and Conceptual Art. It was carried out boldly in public spaces with vivid interactions with the audience of an ideologically saturated and conflicted society, pointing to his obsessions, their inherent contradictions and inevitable collapse.
