Maja's research interest focuses on current debates in identity, colonialism, and approaches to history. She is looking at personal and collective traces of the break-up of Yugoslavia and the consequent reconfiguring of personal and communal identities.
This is leading to constructing a series of artworks that trace the residue of the past transformative events on identities; searching for the traces that reveal the breaking and consequent reconfiguring of these identities, which might help us gain a different perspective on the past and the present.
