Tijana Stevanovic

Tijana Stevanović is a Lecturer in Theory and Practice, Interior Architecture and Design at the University for the Creative Arts, UK and a Teaching Fellow at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. She is currently writing a PhD thesis at Newcastle University on the relations of workers’ self-management to the transformation of architectural practice in post-war New Belgrade. Her research is funded by the studentship in Architectural Theory and Criticism, SAPL, NU and is supervised by Dr Katie Lloyd Thomas and Professor Mark Dorrian. Previously, she was awarded OSI/FCO Chevening scholarship for MA in Identity, Culture and Power at SSEES, University College London (2009/2010).

Tijana is often working in collaborative art projects which explore the systems of knowledge classification and institutionalisation of critique, as well as the latter’s effects on art production processes; recent ones, developed and exhibited in Newcastle and Berlin are: I am too sad to dissent (2013) A Partial Index (2014) and Sick Leave (2015).
