Interview led by Astrid Schenka

In this interview, IRC-Fellow Andrej Mirčev, a scholar of performance studies, a visual artist and a dramaturge, talks about his research project on “(Un)Framing Icons: Performances of Blasphemy in Post-Yugoslavia.” Mirčev explains how he tries to explore the in-between spaces of performing arts, dance and visual art. Working as a curator and dramaturg he positions his research in the intersection of theoretical and practical work with a close focus on intermediality. In the interview, Mirčev explains how he aims to apply the concept of iconoclasm to the performance arts in order to examine the use of religious symbols in numerous harshly criticized performances in post-Yugoslavia.
