MONTY CANTSIN // ISTVAN KANTOR
His main subjects are the decay of technology and the struggle of the individual in technological society. His work has been described by the media as intellectually rebellious, anti-authoritarian, as well as technically innovative and highly experimental. His radically changing creative ambitions are always related to his living environment and social situation. He has been arrested and jailed many times for his blood-x interventions in museums. Kantor was born in Budapest where he studied medical science. In 1976, at age 26, he defected to Paris and from there immigrated to Montreal. He also lived in Portland, New York, Berlin and presently is a resident of Toronto where his children, Jericho, Babylon and Nineveh were born in the 90’s. Besides his individual work he is bandleader/singer of the Red ArmBand, founder-member of MachineSexActionGroup and Kantor Family Circus.
