Anton Kats is an artist, musician and dancer originally from the Ukraine and currently based in London, whose work deals with structures of self-organisation and self-education in marginalised city areas. After attending master programmes in Art in Context at the University of Arts Berlin and Interactive Media: Critical Theory and Practice at Goldsmiths, he is continuing his studies as a PhD candidate at Goldsmiths. He facilitates a practice-based research project, which investigates walking and listening as methodologies within the field of Artistic Research as Pedagogy. His inquiry reveals diverse forms of learning necessary to generate critical and practical knowledge in the everyday, and combines pedagogy and art practice as a form of investigation. Anton’s works have been exhibited and performed in venues such as the Serpentine Galleries, Tate Britain, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Showroom Gallery. www.antonkats.net
