Tomáš Rafa

Artist, photographer and director Tomáš Rafa (1979) studied at the Academy of Arts in Bánská Bystrica (Slovakia) and Warsaw. Since 2009, he has been documenting growing nationalism and neo-fascism in the former Visegrad region. In his native Slovakia, he is involved in the transformation of "sports walls" surrounding Roma communities into street art galleries. Since 2015, he has focused on a European solution to the refugee crisis. His projects have been on display at the Prague and Berlin Biennials as well as the MoMa PS1 Gallery in New York.
