MgA. Peter Sit born in 1991 @ Trnava, Czechoslovakia

co-founder / artist @ APART, since 2012

for more works go on apart.sk

APART performs research, creative and artistic production, project- and exhibition-making / curatorial production, publication and archiving. The artists initiate, create, organise and exhibit group manifestations (often inviting and giving space to other artists and theoreticians) but they also operate individually.

APART is a meta-participative platform. APART works on a proto-institutional basis – under the principle of shared economies, it slots its poly-subjectivity into what is currently desired and related within its context. Rather than building new networks they aim at activating the acceleration of existing intellectual and poetical synapses worthy of attention. They know that nature is already saturated with networks.

In 2012 founded publishing house called APART LABEL where edited and co-edited so far twenty publications with artists as Ján Ballx, Babi Badalov, Oto Hudec, Mehraneh Atashi, Milan Adamčiak, Catarina Simao, Martin Vongrej and more. Books were distributed and presented internationally.

In 2018 co-founded Bratislava BAK Summer School in partnership with BAK (basis voor actuele kunst) in Utrecht, Open Studio/Studio IN – Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, APART Collective in Bratislava, and initiated by Kristína Országhová / www.bratislavabaksummerschool.art
