Antonio Muntadas was born in 1942, in Barcelona, Spain. He went to the University of Barcelona for undergraduate work, then received his MA from the Escuela Tecnica Superior Ingenieros Industriales in Barcelona. In 1971 he moved to New York and studied at Pratt Graphics Center. Muntadas is a media artist most interested in the investigation of the social and educational aspects of media. His internationally recognized videotapes and media installations investigate the contradictory messages projected by print and broadcast media, architecture, and language. Throughout his work, Muntadas recontextualizes available imagery in order to provoke the viewer into re-thinking the meaning of the images and sounds.

This videotape produced for the Long Beach Museum of Art includes interview segments with Muntadas and curator Kathy Rae Huffman, as well as examples of his works.
