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

Martha Wenzel was born in Prussia, studied in Munich under Ernst Neumann. Her powerful woodcuts of the early 1900s show a remarkable talent, but like so many female artists of her day, little is known about her.
