Katarina Zdjelar grew up in Belgrade and is currently based in Rotterdam. Working mainly in the medium of moving image and installation, her work explores the way one body encounters another as a site of resistance and possibility, pointing to the fragile agency of collective action in the present. Voice, music, sound and language have been the core interests throughout her practice. Her most recent works look at potentials and legacies of pacifist (proto) feminist practices, including that of Käthe Kollwitz and Dore Hoyer. Zdjelar holds an MA in Fine Art from the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, she is a graduate of the University of Arts Belgrade and has completed a twoyear residency at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. Zdjelar represented Serbia at the 53rd Venice Biennale and has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally at such venues as 11th Berlin Biennale, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; Frieze Foundation, London; Casino Luxembourg; De Appel, Amsterdam, MACBA Barcelona; MCOB Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade; Museum Sztuki Lodz. She was awarded several prizes, most recently the MMSU Award of the 24thZagreb Salon (2019), Dolf Henkes Prize (2017), as she was one of the nominees for the Dutch Prix de Rome Award (2017, 2010).  Zdjelar is also an educator in her post as a core tutor at Piet Zwart Institute (MA Fine Art), WdKA Rotterdam and MAR (Master Artistic Research) at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.
