Tomas Rafa

Tomas Rafa is a Slovak artist whose works engage with social and political issues and explore the impact that art can have on reality. Through film footage and outputs in the form of reports Rafa defines the relativity of the boundaries between patriotism and nationalism (extremism). He approaches terms such as multiculturalism (Roma people), xenophobia, extremism and neofascism against the background of everyday life. The reports generated from Rafa's investigation contain content about new nationalism that is easy to understand by wide range of audiences.
