After initial studies in Sociology in Belgrade, Serbia, I went on to receive my Bachelor’s
degree from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. A few years later I graduated cum
laude from the Master of Film program at the Netherlands Film Academy. I am doing Artistic
Research Ph.D. at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with the ongoing research project
"I Dance Alone" that observes clubbing from a birds-eye-view as a mirror of social and political
changes. Investigating collective and individual dynamics of the dance floor.
I have been nominated twice for the ‘Venice Biennale - La Biennale di Venezia’ to
represent Serbia with the project Hospitality . This project dealt with (ex)military personnel
(NATO/UN) who, upon returning from war missions, experienced health problems and
premature death due to the rapid growth of lymphoma and lung cancer. Hospitality explored the
claims that the myriad of different diseases the soldiers developed were related to the use of
weapons containing depleted uranium (DU). This project required the synthesis of input from
different disciplines and experts.
Between 2012-2015 I curated an international series of exhibitions and events tackling
the social meaning of the personal image under the title ‘FACELESS’. The project was inspired
by my interest in the recurring presence of hidden faces in contemporary society after September
11 th . After this project I started a yearly collaboration and production of exhibitions and
symposiums with the CPDP-Computer Privacy and Data Protection Conferences in Brussels, a
non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit
Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. This phenomena will be documented as
special edition of the University for Applied Arts Vienna in August 2017, under the title
“ FACELESS: Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies ”1.
