Vesna Vuković is a translator, curator and researcher, member of Zagreb-based collective [BLOK], associate and periodic lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts Zagreb. She writes and publishes here and there.
Vukovic’s work is dedicated to the art in public space and its relation to the politics of public domain. Her curatorial practice explores inbetween-spaces of generation, production and representation of contemporary art, as a form of expanded exhibition, as well as spatial organization of the public sphere. During her residency she will examine the status of curator within art in public space, possibilities and limitations of this specific curatorial practice.
