Czech-Argentinian artist Federico Díaz (*1971) studied at the studios of Stanislav Kolíbal, Karel Malich and Aleš Veselý at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He went on scholarships at Alexander-Dorner-Kreis, Cité Internationale des Arts and Soros Center for Contemporary Arts. He focuses on experimentation in the field of new media and interactive installations. He explores the relations between people, science and art, environmental and urbanistic topics, and the universe. He is interested in art created without the interference of the artist based on algorithms and system steps. To him, science and art are inseparable. Using latest technologies, he constructs artificial spaces and virtual realities directly based on the potential of these technologies. He redefines the role of humans in the world of fast changes – scientific and global ones. He also focuses on architecture and design. He lectured at the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University in Brno and headed the Supermedia Studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague between 2007 and 2014. He is a holder of the Premio Internazionale “Lorenzo il Magnifico” award from the Florence Biennale and the Nicola Trussardi Foundation award from Milano Europe Futuro Presente. He exhibited his work at Mori Art Museum Tokyo, ICA London, ZKM Karlsruhe, Ars Electronica Linz, MASS MoCA, PS1 MoMA, Miami Art Basel and 53rd Biennale di Venezia. In 2010, he represented Czech art at Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China.
