Maja Ciric is an independent curator based in Belgrade, Serbia and transnationalrepublic.org. She says that her logic of practice cannot be defined by the dominant geopolitical structures and their impact on the art world; rather she tries to think about the art world differently, in terms of criticality and post-globalism. Her areas of research span from curating as an institutional critique, through to the research of the geopolitics of the curatorial, with special emphasis on the transnational circulation of ideas and curating.
She is a recipient of the Lazar Trifunovic Award for Art Criticism (Belgrade), the CEC ArtsLink Independent Projects Award (New York), the ISCP Curator Award (New York) and the Dedalus/Independent Curators International Curatorial Research Award (New York). She was the curator of the Serbian Pavilion at the 52nd International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia and is the Commissioner for the Serbian Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia.
