Andrea Knezović is a conceptual visual artist and researcher with an master’s of research in artistic research from the University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam and a bachelor’s degree from Academy of Visual Arts, Ljubljana. Knezović’s research interests center around the politics of care, care’s institutional implications, and its mythological aspect.
During the BAK Fellowship for Situated Practice, Knezović aims to connect and look back at the history of The Non-Alignment Movement as a symbolic departure point for further research going beyond the geopolitical and territorial framework into realms of cognitive capitalism. How can one face today’s imperial dominance of cognitive capitalism and its cooption of intimacy, and what kind of strategies and alliances can be created, secured, and established for a more caring future?
