Ádám ALBERT is an artist, teacher and researcher. He is an Associate Professor and head of the Department of Artistic Anatomy, Drawing and Geometry at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts as well as director of the Art and Art Theory College for Advanced Studies. Currently, he is heading the Hungarian work packages of EU4Art H2020 differences, artistic research in Europe.

Adam Albert’s artistic attitude is to reflect on a wide range of cultural-intellectual transmissions (that is, the means and modes of knowledge production) that traverse through historical time and geographical space. These socio-political problems, however, are not addressed directly, rather he places (or displaces) certain questions or aspects of socio-cultural issues into the sphere of aesthetics. His artistic practice is characterized by the use of various materials and techniques, which he utilizes in creating total installations occupying the whole gallery space available. Recently, he has been involved in artistic research through the exploration of collections and archives of different museums and institutions. His artwork can be found in public museums and galleries in Budapest, Hungary.
