educational background

Studied dramaturgy at the Academy for Theatre, Radio, Film and Television in Ljubljana.

She writes about theatre, dance, visual art, culture and cultural politics for local and international magazines such as Maska, Mars, Tema Celeste, and Flash Art, and has lectured on these same subjects before academic seminars and public audiences in New York, Germany, Greece, Slovenia, Austria, and Belgium. Her writings have appeared in a number of scholarly publications in the USA including Conversations at the Castle: Changing Audiences and Contemporary Art (MIT Press, 1998), Primary Documents: A Sourcebook for Eastern and Central European Art Since the 1950s (Museum of Modern Art, 2002) and Impossible Histories: Yugoslavian Avant-gardes and Neo-avant-gardes (MIT Press, forthcoming).
In 1983 she cofounded the Scipion Nasice Sister's Theatre which, together with the visual art group Irwin and the industrial music group Laibach, formed one of the three constituent elements of NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst), an interdisciplinary art collective that defined the Slovenian neo-avant-garde and to a large extent the Eastern European art scene of the 1980s through an extensive range of cultural actions and intellectual practices focused on the relation between art and ideology.
