Kata Balogh - Communication

Kata is a multidisciplinary creator who has the body as the main tool at the center of her work, but who at the same time dedicates herself to cultural management, graphic design, photography and video.

The engine of her creative practice is to find the intersections between different disciplines, themes and contexts, generating projects that function as platforms for reflection, play, intervention and identification.
