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

Born in 1945, the Swiss artist Jean-Frédéric Schnyder is a lapsed Conceptualist who enjoys working with his hands, usually on a diminutive scale, alternating layers of sincerity and irony. In 1993 he represented Switzerland at the Venice Biennale with 119 tiny, mostly sunny scenes of the nation’s highway system, invariably painted from its overpasses, both updating and undermining his country’s pastoral stereotype
