Jelena Jureša Ghent
Jelena Jureša is a visual artist and filmmaker, born in Yugoslavia who lives and works in Belgium. In her films, photography and video installations, Jureša explores issues of cultural identity, gender, the politics of remembering and forgetting, and collective violence. She unceasingly questions historical and political narratives and tries to destabilise our ideas of what is true. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including her latest solo exhibitions at Argos centre for audiovisual arts in Brussels, Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien in Graz, and Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgrade. Jureša holds a PhD from Ghent University, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, and KASK & Conservatorium in Ghent. In 2017, she was granted a two-year artistic research project at KASK School of Arts for Unfolding Amnesia: An Interdisciplinary Inquiry into Artistic Practices and the Politics of Oblivion, and in 2020 a post-doctoral fellowship for Revolt! On a Refusal to Sing—Thinking Resistance Through Music, Waste and Complicity.
