Antoni Muntadas. (Barcelona, 1942) has been living in New York since 1971. His work addresses social, political and communication issues, such as the relationship between public and private space within certain social frameworks, or channels of information and the way in which they are used to censor or promulgate ideas. In the mid nineties he opened a line of research dedicated to the study of cultural translation understood as a contemporary phenomenon. This is represented by a series of projects entitled On Translation (1995 - in progress), with which Muntadas offers a collection of stimuli for reflection on what translation means in age of globalisation, talks about current debates within translation studies, and links them to the critical study of media and artistic production.

Muntadas has taught and directed seminars in various institutions in Europe and the United States, has been a resident artist and professor at various research and education centres. He has had a long and noteworthy career as a guest lecturer at the Visual Arts Programme at the MIT School of Architecture, Cambridge, Massachusetts (1977-2014). He is currently a professor at the IUAV University in Venice.
