Mircea Cantor

Romanian multi-media artist, Mircea Cantor's personal website. Cantor is interested in the reality of globalization and takes after Duchamp's precedent in challenging the standards of what an artist can do and say in contemporary society. From this Youtube clip where a curator describes an exhibition of Cantor, she explains how his art taps into the notion of what is an artist's genuine role in society, and if that role even can exist in a functioning society. Cantor's different mediums of expressing his opinions on globalization vary with meaning and message.
