TAMÁS PÁLL (b. 1989) is a researcher, game designer and developer working in Budapest and Berlin. His works and collaborations have been showcased at The Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Panke Gallery, Berlin; Ludwig Museum, Budapest, Trafó House of Contemporary Arts, Budapest; Transmediale, Berlin; MeetFactory, Prague. He is a co-founder and member of the Hollow.Systems artist group and the Rites Network art collective.
His research and artistic focus is on how different systems conceptualize “worlds”, and his methodology stems from the exploration of emergent world-systems, non-human technologies, performative spaces and experimental role-playing. Páll is a PhD candidate at the University of Applied Arts Vienna’s Artistic Research programme, where he explores new forms of collective world-building and computational simulation as a prefigurative practice via extending and testing the concept of Xenoreality (emergent and temporary realities between fiction and primary reality).
Since 2018 he participated in a number of group residencies with his collaborative works in Prague at MeetFactory, Divadlo X10 and Neiro; in Berlin at Trust, Collegium Hungaricum Berlin and Montag Modus; and in Budapest at SIN Production, AQB Project Space amongst others, and received grants for his group based projects from Goethe Institut, iPortunus (Creative Europe) and Visegrad Fund.
