(Stara Moravica, 1954 – Berlin, 2011)

Lászlo Kerekes was a conceptual artist and a member of the Bosch+Bosch Group. From 1993 he was an active member of the Artists’ Museum movement initiated by Emmett Williams.

In the first half of the 1970s, Kerekes’ art was based on actions and interventions related to land art. When Lake Palić near Subotica was drained in 1972, he made “landscape corrections” by placing strips in the bottom of the lake or writing in chalk signs (numbers, mathematical signs, lines, arrows) defined according to his own coordinate system. At the same time, his activities included mail art, xeroxed electrography, experimental film and actions inspired by Fluxus.

In 2005 he introduced a wide-angle digital camera obscura suitable for art photography, which he had not only invented but also engineered. On his fiftieth birthday in 2004, he symbolically withdrew from public appearances as an artist.
