Abstract

This paper will look at two distinct forms of feminist performative political practice: Tanja Ostojic’s “Looking for a husband with EU passport” (2001-2005) and Lena Simic’s “Blood & Soil: we were always meant to meet…” (2011-2014). These two projects are an aesthetic exploration of women’s experiences of belonging and otherness in borderland after the Yugoslavia war crises. The projects autobiographical paradigm intersects with larger social and cultural issues.
