Bojana Piškur (born in Ljubljana), PhD is a writer and curator who works at the Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (Museum of Modern Art in Ljubljana). Her focus of professional interest is on political issues as they relate to or are manifested in the field of art, with special emphasis on the region of the former Yugoslavia and Latin America. She has written for numerous publications and lectured in many parts of the world on the topics such as post avant-gardes in former Yugoslavia, radical education, cultural politics in self-management and the Non-Aligned Movement, always in relation to the wider social and political environment.
Related exhibitions and projects include Museum in the Street (with Zdenka Badovinac), Moderna galerija Ljubljana, 2008; This is All Film, Experimental Film in Yugoslavia 1951–1991 (with Ana Janevski, Jurij Meden and Stevan Vuković), Moderna galerija Ljubljana, 2010; Museum of Affects (with Bartomeu Mari, Bart de Baere, Teresa Grandas and Leen de Backer), Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova, 2011; Politicization of Friendship, MSUM, 2014. In 2006 she initiated the project Radical Education, the aim of which was “to translate” radical pedagogy into the sphere of artistic production, with education being conceived not only as a model, but also as a field of political participation.
