Sculptor Kardos Botond (1949, Pécs, Hungary – 2010 Nuremberg, Germany) became known as BOTOND in the International and Hungarian art scene. He had lived in Germany since 1979. He elaborated framework projects, which he realized through sculptures, drawings, paintings, photos, and actions. Several of his works deal with the criticism of interrelated knowledges and applications: nature ↔ cognitive systems ↔ social distribution systems. His work cannot be considered conceptual art despite their philosophical character: he renewed the means of conventional sculpture, painting and graphics with a peculiar form of expression. His work are saturated with criticism and humorous reflections. He was fond of using stainless steel, used truck tilt, sewed and welded polyethylene, velvet, bronze, and wire. His works can be viewed in public places (Budapest, Nuremberg), in public collections (Germany, Austria, Hungary), as well as in many private collections throughout Europe.
