Anton Kats (r. 1983 Kherson, Ukraine) is an artist, musician and dancer who is currently based on Earth. Anton’s practice derives from informal everyday relationships within a vibrant neighbourhood in Kherson, Ukraine, and is complemented through the necessity and pragmatics of self-legalisation in Europe via entering formal institutions of education. After attending Master’s programmes in Art in Context at the University of Arts Berlin and Interactive Media: Critical Theory and Practice at Goldsmiths College, University of London, Kats finalised his studies through a practice-based PhD at Goldsmiths. In 2016, Kats was invited to join the aneducation team of documenta14 as an artist, where he initiated the Narrowcast House and the A-Letheia projects. Kats is a lecturer and educator with experience in developing experimental academic curricula with the Weissensee School of Art, Berlin, and was a lecturer of Contextual Studies at Ravensbourne University in London and a guest lecturer at the New York University and Goldsmiths University of London. His works have been exhibited and performed in venues including the SAVVY Contemporary, Serpentine Galleries, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Showroom Gallery, Bergen Kunsthall, Kochi Muziris Biennale, Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel, among others.
