ABOUT

Bojana S. Knežević is a multimedia artist who deals with human behavior through performance and participatory art projects, and defines herself as a performer-recycler. Her artistic practice often includes presentation and/or creation of specific (hybrid) identities, with an aim to redefine manifold stereotypes and highlight inconsistencies in different social structures and systems. These individual or group identities work as platforms for the artistic intervention and creative resistance. With documentary approach, Bojana works with a variety of media experiments, DIWO (do it with others) strategy and anti-art strategies of appropriation and self-proclamation. By opening up the space for multi-layered interpretations, she tries to establish and encourage a complex 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.
