Geta Brătescu is an artist associated with Romanian Conceptualism. She worked as an illustrator and later as a graphic designer for the cultural newspaper Secolul 20 (20th Century) in addition to her artistic projects. Toward the end of the ’70s, she rented a studio that not only served as a place of work and as a retreat, but also increasingly functioned as the subject of her artistic practice, becoming a stage for temporary installations as well as a production venue for her films.
In 2008 she is awarded with „doctor honoris causa” by the Arts University of Bucharest.
