Tanja Markovic was born in Belgrade in 1970. She graduated in Psychology from the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Belgrade. She was a postgraduate student of Theory of Arts and Media at the University of Arts, Belgrade. A member of the Druga Scena (Other Scene) platform of the Belgrade independent scene, she has also done activistic work with the Women at Work and The Center for Queer Studies. She has had several performances in Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana and London in collaboration with the TkH group, and has exhibited installations in group exhibitions in Belgrade, Vienna, San Diego and Timisoara. She is the author of several theoretical and artistic texts (published in TkH Journal for Performing Arts Theory), poetry (magazines: ProFemina, Treći trg, Agon, Anthology of contemporary poetry Tracing the Gender-Meaning of Engagement, DEVE, Belgrade, 2006); and, along with Tamara Suskic and Ana Seferovic, is the co-author of the drama plays Discreet Women, Decorative Child and Great Dane (published in Book 24 / 7 of Love, DEVE, Belgrade 2007, and in Scene, Theater Arts Review, 2008) and Navigation (public readings in theatre Preglej, Ljubljana, 2008 and in Sterijino pozorje, Novi Sad, 2009).

R.Harald Baayen & Robert Schreuder), Monton de Gruyter, Berlin, New York, 2003.

Nikoleta Markovic's interests are placed in the liminal space between contemporary art and potential new audience and authors, investigating the complex inter-relations essential to this exchange. Her works are generated mostly within the process of examining positions, roles and responsibilities of the artist in contemporary society, thus thematizing the entire drama of politics going on between an individual and community. Her recent activities revolve around experiments in developing of (motivational) workshop as a model for participative, non-hierarchical art education and in realizing practice of a workshop as a lecture-performance structure for art and activism. She participated in numerous international exhibitions, conferences and workshops. She is the author of several art works in public space and is currently working on her PhD thesis at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. (www.elevatorart.info)
