ABOUT

Bojana S. Knežević is an interdisciplinary artist, working in the fields of performance, video, audio-visual installation and sound art. In her socially engaged and participatory art projects she aims to redefine manifold stereotypes, with a focus on unheard voices of sidelined, marginalized or hidden scenes and topics that reveal multilayered truths.

While dealing with a variety of media experiments, she approaches the study of different identity micro-politics and social issues from the specific position of performer-recycler. Her performative recycling practice often includes presentation and/or creation of specific identity hybrids, which aim to highlight problems and communication gaps between opposed elements of a system. Her methodology includes strategies of performance, participatory art and journalism, as well as anti-art strategies of appropriation and self-proclamation. By opening up the space for multi-layered interpretations, she encourages complex communication and interaction between the audience and the artwork.

She holds BA and MFA degree (New Media Arts) from the Department of Fine Arts, Academy of Arts Novi Sad, and doctoral degree (Interdisciplinary doctoral art studies - Digital Art), from the University of Arts in Belgrade (Serbia).

Co-founder of the association and co-author of radio show/podcast, art and media project FEMKANJE dedicated to contemporary art, culture and feminism in Serbia, ex-YU region and Europe.

Author of BOASZ - long standing sound art project.

Currently lives and works in Belgrade.
