Tanja Vujinovic


Tanja Vujinovic (Tatjana Vujinovic Kusej, b.1973), is a visual and sound artist active in the field of intermedia art. She graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in the year 1999 and has been a guest student at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. At the moment, she is pursuing postgraduate studies in Philosophy and Theory of Visual Culture at the University of Primorska Faculty of Humanities Koper. She is the author of numerous installations, video and sound works, and public art projects. She has also developed a number of projects working collaboratively with different artists. Her work includes intermedia sculptures, drawings, live visual and sound installations, digital prints, and sound and video pieces. She combines a variety of aspects in her work, simultaneously using drawing and sound pieces, analog and digital resources, or site-specific elements. Her intermedia interests are also reflected in the content of her work: anomalies and errors in intermedia textures through the creative (ab)use of technology, and information as noise. She creates "discrete events in noisy domains", where she works on the unfolding of the signal and beat-less images for touching and hearing. She works within the non-profit art project production and research institution Exstat (Zavod Exstat), which deals with various intermedia projects related to sound and visual art, as well as art in public spaces, and theory. It continues the work of the institution Automata, which she co-founded in 2002 and reorganized as Exstat in 2006. Her A/V works and installations have been exhibited at numerous museums, galleries, media and film festivals throughout Europe and the United States, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Kunst Palast Museum Düesseldorf; the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Strasbourg; Kunsthaus Meran in Italy; and the Medienturm International Forum, Graz, Austria. Her works have been included in numerous collective exhibitions such as the Madrid Abierto, Euroscreen21 project, Zero Visibility, Ctheory Multimedia NetNoise and Web Biennial Istanbul. (
