Tatjana Macic 





Tatjana Macic is a visual artist, writer and researcher based in Amsterdam the Netherlands. She is deploying her artistic practice as an agency to explore the intersections between visual art, theory, exhibition-making, education and language.

Tatjana holds a BA from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts and an MA with honours in Theory and History of Contemporary Art from the University of Amsterdam.

Her work poses an array of questions often revolving around rhizomatic points of departure like the human nature, constructed histories and the relation between the body, space and theory. Tatjana works in a variety of media such as lecture-performances, installations, artistic archives, interventions in public space, painting, internet art and graphic novels. Her work is widely shown including at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Venice Biennale Collateral Events, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the Gallery of Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina, Royal Dutch Institute of the Tropes in Amsterdam, The Wrong Internet Biennial, Arti et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, Cabinet Gallery in New York USA, Scryption Museum in Tilburg, Centre for Contemporary Art Negotin, Serbia, FAD in Barcelona Spain and Kunst Vlaai in Amsterdam.

In her writing practice Tatjana explores the innovation of syntax, simulacrum, science fiction and the power of image in the context of language, relating thereby poetry and prose to the image or spatial installations.

Tatjana teaches Art & Research at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, where she is also head of Research and Discourse together with Maarten Cornel. In addition, she teaches masterclasses including the Exhibition Research Lab at the Lectorate Art Theory & Practice and the Leiden University.

Actively engaging in the field of arts and culture, Tatjana is contributing to various organisations and to the public discourse as an adviser, editor, researcher or exhibition-maker. For example for the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, HTV de IJsberg and Platform BK.

Recently Tatjana founded Urgent Matters / Srettam Tnegru - an initiative for art and research which questions conditions for artistic practice and critical thinking.
