Danica Dakić has been Spokesperson and professor of the international Master degree programme »Public Art and New Artistic Strategies/Kunst im öffentlichen Raum und neue künstlerische Strategien« (M. F. A.) since 2011 at Faculty of Art and Design, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.

Danica Dakić’s (*1962, Sarajevo) artistic works include video, film, photography, performance and installation. The artist works with performative and participatory processes to question cultural memory and identity, language and (art) history in its constant change. With her artistic work, she creates a stage in which her own individual narratives can be developed beyond political, social or economic conditions. Her projects are often based on lengthly production processes and an intensive collaboration with the actors.

Dakić has participated in numerous group exhibitions including documenta 12 (2007), Istanbul Biennial (2003 and 2009), Biennale of Sydney (2010), Liverpool Biennial (2010), Kiev Biennale (2012), Marseille-Provence / European Capital of Culture ( 2013), São Paulo Biennial (2014) and Cuenca Biennial (2016/2017).

Solo exhibitions have been held at Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg (2017), Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt am Main (2013), Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2011), Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb (2010), the Generali Foundation, Vienna (2010) and at Kunsthalle Dusseldorf (2009), among others.

She is a founding member of the Council for Cultural Education, started in 2012.

She lives in Düsseldorf and Weimar, Germany.

VITA

Raul Walch (1980) crosses the boundaries of artistic genres in his broad and inventive practise. He works as a sculptor and conceptual artist but also slips easily into the roll of an investigator or becomes part of a performance. Since starting his education in sculpture at the Art Academy Weißensee, and subsequently at IFREX, the Institute for Spatial Experiments, UdK Berlin, it has been an essential aspect of Raul Walch’s work to exhibit not only in conventional exhibition spaces, but to specifically explore the public sphere. His focus is on creating an unconventional approach to social reality, often unexpectedly including observers in the process. Walch’s playful works and actions are not limited to questioning or participation. Instead, he creates ephemeral and largely site-specific interventions that respond to different environments around the world.
