Michal Mitro (1989, Slovakia) is conceptual artist, composer and performer working across wide field of media. Coming from Social Sciences background he aims to doubt and discuss the status quo of the “naturally given”, “normal”, and “traditionally right”. He focuses his attention on nuances of every day life that, granted their ordinariness and omnipresence, cease to attract any interest and critical thought and are widely but silently accepted. He, too, strives to diminish and ultimately defy the border between audience and artist/composer, to redefine the art making process and to work towards more inclusive, more accessible and more public art.
Michal Mitro has been educating himself on various fields of art since 2010. After he graduated from Psychology and Sociology at MUNI (CZE) in 2013, he went on to study Sculpture and Sonic arts at UTAS, (AUS) and later Gamelan (traditional Indonesian music) at ISI Yogyakarta (IDN). Currently he’s studying Multimedia-Composition at JAMU (CZE).
