Graphic designer and artist, Márton Kabai (HU), graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague.

He is an affiliated researcher at Lectoraat Sustainable Business (Avans). He is the co-founder of Oddkin, artist duo. He lives and works in The Hague with his family.
Kabai started teaching and giving workshops from 2017. He believes that education is an act of liberation that can lead to systemic change. Kabai has developed a module called Designing our ways out of design, to investigate the potential of a post-anthropocentric design paradigm. The module runs through two-semester. The first semester concentrated on the student’s critical cartographies of the Anthropocene. The second semester focused on the class as a collective, where they join forces to act together as a team, finding a common goal, despite the differences. Kabai taught and lectured in art schools, including Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague, NL or École supérieure d’art et de design des Pyrénées, Pau, FR
He is interested in the role of design and designing in our age of ecological, social, and political crisis. His works can be located around the subjects of posthuman, Anthropocene, and biopolitics. He is making critical cartographies in a form of publications, videos, installations and games as well as developing a visual language in 3D graphics.
He is active in exhibiting, teaching, lecturing, and running workshops. As Oddkin, he is recently exhibited, in Israel, UAE, Turkey, France and across the Netherlands.
