I am a writer: a scriptwriter, an essayist and a poet, currently working mostly as an editor and as a journalist. I have taken part in various international film/theatre projects and interdisciplinary workshops, while also creatively contributing to numerous local festivals during the previous years. At the moment I am pursuing my PhD research at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts, with a strong focus on new media and digital humanities. I am dedicated to education in audiovisual culture through the work of Filmkultura, association where I am one of the founders.
These are all facts, nicely arranged due to the generational experience in producing hundreds of short biographies and about-me sections. However, what I never mention in them is that cinemas, woods-like backyards, second-hand bookshops and quiet pre-war buildings are where I feel at home; and that is also a fact. I was born in Belgrade and I’ve always lived here – even though I wander a lot, it remains the central point of my every map.
Whenever I naively start believing I’ve come to the point of knowing Belgrade well, it surprises me with dazzling architecture, small confectioneries, cruel and poetic decay, strong and disobedient wind. It is in constant movement, this city, and I do my best to run after it through narrow passages, across rivers, squares and flea markets. For a brief moment, I sometimes even succeed in touching its inner edges.
