Our current resident is photographer Sandra Ratkovic from Berlin who has come to Belgrade to research her current project: CHANGES IN SEMIOTICS AND AESTHETICS OF INDUSTRIAL SITES IN FORMER YUGOSLAVIA. Sandra focuses on free artistic documentary photography and is interested in capturing everyday activities to tell stories of different places and different cultural norms. She is expecting to work on this current project for some months and during this initial three week stay in Belgrade she will establish the methodologies needed to complete the work. Her stay at the Footnote Centre for Image and Text (from 3rd - 24th September 2021) is supported by ifa – Institute for Foreign Relations (Germany). Later in September she will present a work-in-progress show at the Footnote House.
Sandra has an MA in Art History from the University of Frankfurt and her work has been widely exhibited in Germany, Serbia, Hungary, the UK and the USA. She is a recipient of numerous grants and awards. There are two photographic books featuring her work: "Merseyside and Brexit" (2020) and "Moscow. Moscow. Москва́",published by Hatje Cantz Publishing and a catalogue produced by the Museum of Novi Sad, "Parallel Biographies Serbia-Germany" (2019).
