Paragraphs of main criticisms                                                              


"I must say Kosice is the most interesting case I've observed between Argentines and I think his greatest achievement has tested comes in search of new methods of investigation, of a plastic value out of all traditional art techniques. In addition, he works on a line which has a particular tradition, constructivist line is probably the most original and the most dynamic movement of Buenos Aires; He is a long time the father of this current constructivist interesting accent ago."            

Giulio Carlo Argan

Extracto de opinión Jurado Premio Di Tella

Buenos Aires, 1962


"When a young artist yet, Kósice put your country at the head of Madi group was already in motion and perfectly aware of their options. That is, the intuition to turn and run the break with established ways to decide the authenticity of a work, in a word, its revolutionary character and no traditionalist, terms that apply to both the work and person of Kosice .
                 What interests Kósice is the space inhabited by man: the city. Henceforth, to your art, the promises of the multi-dimensions, in other words open the-art functions in all areas of modern life. It is by water and movement, which is part Kósice, thinking that the new plastic will be present at the physical extents of the world, the endless extensions of the universal consciousness. " 

Víctor Vasarely

París 1961


"Madi and Kosice are the expression of one of the most ardent youths. Your name resolves sounding Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and other countries in South America, this vast expanse of living earth, which awaits a great destination when the modern spirit has transcended the (...) Madi works and has for over two decades with the spiritual goal. Painting-Sculpture-Architecture-Poetry, are the daily bread for Madí that dazzling hand and distributes his circle. Whoever denigrates, Madi responds with his works. Long live Madi "

 "From a kinetic water sculpture architecture, language is structured Kósice gradually from the inside; each new dimension has had an immediate impact on the synthetic language sensitivity. Today his vision involves time in its continuity, the present and the future: extradimensional space also, where galactic infinity. And in the space-time physical and mental well defined, the last post of Kosice, an invitation to the supreme Travel Technology humanitarianism, a call to feel better, to see higher and further, a call to a better life unfolds. "

"Kósice has good pasta of creators and we consider that among the features of it is the possibility of error is included. The flawlessness is too often mental note straits in which they are comfortable for those who prefer not to risk being installed in the canons of academia. Therefore also risks who somehow participate in this creative adventure of accelerated spirit, even in times like ours speed. I have had the privilege of seeing him fight Kósice during these last twenty years. Always enthusiastic, always happy, that form of virtue itself, as Spinoza wanted. His contagious vitality nurtured battery seems unfamiliar with the download. Generous to others to overflowing, tireless worker on his own, giving it and everyday test that our environment requires those who dare to believe in him, obsessive dweller hidroespacio belongs to the genre of the Presocratics with Tales viewed in the water the origin of all things. "Rafael Squirru



"The committee Réalités Nouvelles has made an international appeal having obtained a good answer as to pictures and objects. Foreign curiosity has been sending the Argentine group Madi, who run Kósice Rothfuss and drums beating. How to define your findings? The art breaks Madí boxes right angles. It's brutal, barbarian, insolent, brand new. Most are proud of their style. Looking out of the "darkness" and furiously protesting against the rules of abstraction.

"You know the esteem I have for you, I'm still in awe your evolution with your manifesto 1946. I have made for years the concrete-abstract movement (...) my concern was to evolve this move other art form. 

Lucio Fontana

"The Art of Kosice is the art of today and tomorrow. It is the fruit of the imagination, an absolutely free imagination, a, industrious, ingenious imagination to the extent of the formidable potential of our current universe. "

Jean Cassou

Director Museo de Arte Moderno



"In 1946, exposes Kósice sculptures built with neon gas tubes. Fifteen years later other rediscover this material when Kósice had found its definitive way: bind water and light, movement and transparency. If he lived in Paris, his work would be located between Calder movils and Tinguely machines. "
