Sandra Bradvić is an art historian and curator. She holds an MA in art history from the University in Zurich. Currently she is a PhD candidate at the University of Bern (supervisor: Prof. Dr. Peter J. Schneemann), where she is working on her thesis “Curatorial practice in Bosnia-Herzegovina 1982-2011”.
Previously, she was engaged as both, a scientific collaborator and curator, in several institutions, such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), Kunsthalle Basel/CH or Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven/NL. She was a scholarship holder of the Dr. Joséphine de Karman Stiftung from the University of Bern and has been a guest in residence within the research project „Performance Art in Eastern Europe“ (Prof. Dr. Silvia Sasse) at the Slavic Institute at the University of Zurich.
2017 she has founded the Association for research, documentation & artist representation SKLOP, where she works as director and curator and organizes the The ZVONO Award for contemporary artists from Bosnia-Herzegowina (www.sklop.org).
During the Q21 residency and with regard to the exhibition "Productive Work: what is that supposed to mean", curated by Anamarija Batista at frei_raum Vienna, I intend to conceive a text, focusing on the subject of the exhibition. Possible text forms are an exhibition review and/or an essay. Thereby, not the productivity and her measurability as such should be focused at, but rather the working and production conditions of the (participating) artists.
