Greg Barth

Designer, artist and director

Greg Barth is a multi-dimensional creative talent – a designer, artist and director. His passion for out-of-the-ordinary, often surreal concepts and almost naïve, minimalistic aesthetics, have helped him achieve international fame.

Conservative design often seems more user-friendly, and yet he embraces the experimental, and triumphs. With his playful art of filmmaking, he has been able to build a distinguished client base.

Very few creative artists are able to bring together design and functionality like Greg Barth does.

Zentrum für Politische Schönheit (Center for Political Beauty)

The Center for Political Beauty is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group’s basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its History but also take action. For several years now, the Center has engaged in a parallel (more beautiful) German approach to foreign politics that uses humanity as a weapon.

The Center for Political Beauty engages in the most innovative forms of political performance art- an expanded approach to theatre: art must hurt provoke and rise in revolt. In one basic alliance of terms: aggressive humanism.
