This publication is based upon the Lexicon of Tanjas Ostojić (2011-17), an interdisciplinary participatory research art project by Tanja Ostojić that included academic and artistic research, five creative workshops, a number of public events, one group performance, and two exhibitions involving more then 30 women.
"Tanja Ostojić is an extraordinary and influential Berlin-based, Serbian artist who, since 1994, has created research-led, performative projects that engage with issues of gender politics and feminism, of migration and displacement, and of labour. Lexicon of Tanjas Ostojić brings these strands of her practice together in a multi-disciplinary, process-based, transnational project from a network of women around the world all named Tanja Ostojić."
Lois Keidan, Live Art Development Agency, London
"Most importantly, although transindividuality was always inscribed, its potentiality became visible and comprehensible only through the ‘transformative encounters’, the mutual introductions, and social exchanges during the one-on-one conversations, co-production processes, and public events of the Lexicon of Tanjas Ostojić project. Thus a new sentiment of solidarity with the same (the name), but different (subjectivity and personality) has emerged. It can be read between the lines of this hypertext, the Lexicon with only one entry: Tanja Ostojić, but with so many homonyms and a number of complex cross-references and interpretations that together create an ethnographic and psycho-geographic hypertext available for further research."
