We are sorry to announce that 7th of January 2014 has died Croatian multimedia artist, filmmaker and experimental film guru Ivan Ladislav Galeta (1947–2014). Galeta was our PAF Cult in 2009.
The Croat Ivan Ladislav Galeta rankeds highly among film animators, experimental filmmakers (representatives of structural film) as well as videoartists. Besides film and video production he was engaged in Land art and the ecology of art production. Within his conceptual work, Galeta set up the first day without artistic production in 2007 which, according to the 'day without cars' model, draws attention to the ecological load resulting from any excessive activity.
Read the portrait of Ivan Ladislav Galeta by Martin Mazanec in our archive.
He also introduced his personal selection of twenty-five films by his students.
We strongly recommend the text by Miklós Peternák The Perspective of Ivan Ladislav Galeta, which is dedicated to Galeta's work, in our web archive.
