Terez Osztafi is a photographer, artist, lecturer, art facilitator, linguist, interpreter and cocktail waitress. She grew up in the Soviet Union, Hungary, West Germany and Minnesota, always swinging back and forth between the Eastern and the Western Bloc, experiencing life on both sides of the Iron Curtain. After studying Romanic languages and linguistics in Germany and Italy, she embarked on a journey of art, design, photography, film and visual theory in London and Barcelona.

Her fascination with constructivist photography and Socialist propaganda films led to a BA in Photography and Digital Arts and an MA in Film and Visual Media. She became a visiting lecturer at the University of Westminster in 2000 and a visiting tutor and essay supervisor for MA students at Goldsmiths College in 2009. Terez is also involved in other fields of art education; running museum and gallery workshops, as well as youth and community projects in the UK, Spain and Mexico. She has worked for the ICA, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Watermans, Vital Generation, La Casa de los Ninyos de Yucatan and other organisations. She has been exhibiting her work in London and abroad.
