Kurt Ryslavy is conceptual artist, poet and painter decending from Austria. He invented the “bourgeoise travesty” as an artistic expression. In his view this is one possible strategy to liberate art-production from submission to the globalized race for cultural fundings. He realizes non-fictional iuridic documents within different media. His image-findings/ creations combined with writings go beyond taboos of art, artmarket and society. His preferred media are text, video, installation, performance, sculpture, painting and specific (exhibition-)concepts.
