Stefan Bertalan (1930-2014) was the main figure of research-based, process-oriented and innovative art in Romania. In 1966, together with Roman Cotoșman and Constantin Flondor, he founded the experimental neo-constructivist group 111. After Roman Cotoșman’s escape to the West, another group, Sigma (1969-1982), was founded. Bertalan was the driving force of both 111 and Sigma. The two groups were the most influential and innovative art groups in Romania for decades, shaping the artistic, pedagogical and curatorial practice of generations of young artists and theorists. Bertalan worked in many media, producing drawings, photographs, installations, actions, environments and happenings, often using innovative materials such as plastic, natural and synthetic fibres, X-ray images and aluminium.
