Since 2003, Tamás Kaszás has developed a body work in the areas of installation, drawing and video which explores the concepts of ecological imagination, self-anthropology and utopia – based on a reflection on modernist utopias. His works simultaneously evoke modern language and “popular science” in a broad (and dilated) conception of time, blending the imminent future, memory of the present and the long historical past (along with its artefacts, signs and symbols).

Tamás presents a set of works that, departing from a future scenario of ecological, social and economic collapse, gives rise to a fiction that reaffirms the values of creativity, resistance and autonomy by imagining the objects, practices and strategies of a new alternative future. A flagship project of this fictional projection of an alternative future is Famine Food, which began in 2011 as both a space for the sharing of alternative food strategies as well as a functional space for the “production” of food.
