Antal graduated in 1992 from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, worked as an external lecturer between 2007 and 2015 at the Budapest University of Technology, and was a student of the MOME Doctoral School from 2015 to 2018. Next, he worked as an external lecturer and then a senior lecturer at MOME between 2014 and 2020. Since 2021, he has been Head of the Graphic Design MA and since 2022, an associate professor at MOME.
Antal is a Munkácsy Award and Perika Award winning artist, founder of the Space Detournement Working Group, and an associate professor at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. With artworks and projects straddling the line between reality and fiction such as the INERS Series, Art Mobile, Casa Activa, Icelandic Army, Bundesberg Berlin, Metro Istanbul, and UGAR, he partly integrates visual art into the everyday environment and partly challenges traditional notions of art and rituals of reception by transforming the institutional setting.
His works have been showcased in solo and group exhibitions across the world from the United States to Japan, including the Venice Biennale, the Istanbul Biennale, the São Paulo Biennale, and the 4th Manifesta. In Hungary, his works have been most extensively featured at the Workstation exhibition (Ludwig Museum, 2012-2013) and in the catalogue bearing the same title.
