GIDEON HORVÁTH

Born in 1990, West-Berlin. Lives and works in Budapest, Hungary.


Gideon Horváth is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Budapest, working with a wide range of mediums including videos, photos and installations. Conceptually he is mainly dealing with ecological, queer-ecological, new materialist and new realist theories. His works question anthropocentrism and dualistic worldviews, always giving space to the sensual and intuitive ways of experiencing nature and society. His most recents works are inspired by queer ecological theories, criticizing the heteronormative standards that we hold upon nature and ourselves.

He is also part of the xtro realm artist group with Anna Zilahi and Rita Süveges, co-curating a multitude of programs since 2017. They created a knowledge sharing and transdisciplinary platform that brings together contemporary art with theoretical, scientific and philosophical works on climate change.
