„Looking for a Husband with EU Passport“

„Interactive web project“

'Looking for a Husband with EU Passport' was an interactive web project that thematized gender politics and capitalism and describes the collision between isolation, poverty and the EU's policies of exclusion: to obtain a residence permit for Germany she posted her nude photo on the Internet in search of an EU citizen interested in marriage. A brief meeting in Belgrade was followed by the wedding as performance.

'Provocation is a speciality of mine. My experience tells me that while art cannot quickly change social or political reality, it is important for art not to be apolitical.' (Tanja Ostojic)
