Balasz Takac is alias of Vladimir Bjelicic who is actively engaged in art criticism, curatorial and artistic practice.

The path of Gerd Wandrer to painting was consistently drawn by political unfreedom in the former GDR. After a doctrine and work as a stonemason he began a study of sculpture at the castle Giebichenstein in Halle. In 1981 he was ex-matriculated. Until 1985, Gerd Wandrer was still a master student at the renowned painter Gerhard Kettner at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. Until his departure from West Berlin in 1987, Gerd Wandrer organized 7 “Jenaer Hof Vernissagen” as illegal exhibitions, which are of course quickly reached by mouth propaganda and many visitors.
