"It is the limited and unilateral approach to representation that defines the crisis of art in the 20th century, and only through a comprehensive anthropological approach can art overcome its crisis."
Osvaldo Romberg & Gaston Breyer
Journeys Into Visual Experiences, Universidad de Tucumán, 1972.
Osvaldo Romberg was born and raised in Argentina. Over the past five decades and on five continents, Romberg has produced a consistently goading body of work that tackles questions of analysis, interpretation and representation of art and art history. His own history of translocation, between Argentina, Israel, Europe and the United States and his firm commitment to family and teaching are mirrored by an art practice forever playing with the basics of life, sex and death, and its more complex sensibilities, language and mythology.
