Krisztián Gábor Török (Hungary / UK)

Krisztián Gábor Török

studied History of Art at University of Glasgow. Currently he is the co-editor of Minitremu Art Camp Exercise book. He is a member of a HEKLER Assembly, a peer to peer transnational space to discuss and collectively imagine new ways of instituting. In 2019, he was a Curatorial Fellow at Swimming Pool Sofia Curatorial School: Collaborative Practices. His writings appeared in “Flash Art, “NERO, “RevistArta.

Krisztián was raised in the Pannonian Plains. After moving to the UK, the last years he has been researching different informal pedagogies in Eastern Europe with a specific focus on Transylvania and Banat region. Through his work with Minitremu Art Camp in Transylvania, he became interested in the potential of art education as a vehicle for civil actions. Krisztiáns curatorial practice questions the hegemony of exhibition making using alternative formats to present artistic process such as publications, peer learning groups, discursive platforms and workshops. His practice lays in the intersection of alternative pedagogies, institutional critique and socially engaged art practices. Using methodologies from these different fields his aim is to create alternative self-organised spaces for gathering.

Krisztián Gábor Török is a participant of the ReDirecting: East x Empathic Pedagogies seminar: Future Intimacies.
