1948 - 1980
Né à Budapest (Hungary), décédé en Hungary.
Tibor Hajas (1946–1980, Hungary) explores the limits of the body, life and death in performances often carried out without an audience, for the camera. He will hang upside down, blindfolded or in ropes, submitting himself to beating, whipping or the insertion of syringes. Titles such as 'Flesh Painting', 'Coma', 'Dark Flash' and 'Extinction' indicate the near-death darkness he seeks to create. Hajas also produces objects, films and theoretical texts. For 'Self Fashion Show' (1976), he films passers-by on a square in Budapest and adds a voice-over that manipulates the perception of these people. Hajas dies in a car accident.
