Staš Kleindienst' artistic practice addresses the issues of social reality and social changes from the perspective of the discourse of power and the role of authority. Within this context, he produces a dystopian social fiction that stems from present-day ideological, economic and political co-ordinates. In this respect, he is also interested in detecting and depicting totalitarian sub-context of democratic societies. He works mainly in painting and drawing. He was the 2014 OHO Award winner. His exhibitions include Unknown / Unrecognized, Idrija Municipal Museum, Idrija, and Centre and Gallery P74, Ljubljana, Slovenia; U3-7th Triennial of Contemporary Slovenian Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (MSUM), Ljubljana; Spaceship Yugoslavia- The Suspension of Time, nGbK, Berlin; Not So Distant Memory, Delaware Center for Contemporary Art; and Buy Your Own Art Experience, AC Institute, New York.
