Maja Bajevic was born in 1967 in Sarajevo (ex-Yougoslavia) and became French in November 2003. She lives and works in Paris.
Maja Bajevic (Sarajevo, 1967) bases her work on a poetic and subtle review of historical and social fractures, which involves awareness of the spectator as an agent or audience alike. In her work, she analyses the relationship between violence, power and identity construction, reflects on the impact that political and social conflicts have on daily life and considers the need (as well as the difficulty) to put oneself in another’s shoes. These reflections when taken together always entail the active involvement of the viewer. Bajevic began to be internationally known with her project Women at Work (1991-2001), a series of performance pieces that included the participation of five women refugees from the massacre at Srebrenica.
