Kostana Banović

director, producer

Koštana Banović was born in former Yugoslavia. She holds MA in Fine Arts.
Throughout her oeuvre – drawings, performances, movies – Banović never hesitated to engage in rituals as a means to reduce the distance between Self and the Other, represented by the cultures encountered during her many travels. The travels have shown that the Other was to be found within, as a disturbing yet inextricable part of Self. She has worked in countries like Cuba, Senegal, Angola, Brazil and Caribbean where she has developed video-art projects with local communities. Taking part in and researching ritual as a means of getting in touch with oneself and others is a recurring element in her work. Her work researches the boundaries of modern visual anthropology, documentary and fine art.
