Maja Bekan is performance and visual artist, from Former Yugoslavia, currently based in The Netherlands. She is a co-founder and developer of the Rotterdam based artists' initiative ADA, Area for Debate and Art. By working with different mediums she explores the notion of free time, the use of it, its initiation, establishment and ritualisation. Interested in a collaborative and social as a medium approach within her artistic practice, she works on long term research-based projects that involve different levels of collaborations, and that are presented to the public in the form of performances, specifically created environments, video/audio/text based installations and public conversations. She received a master’s degree in Fine Art at Piet Zwart Institute & Fine Art at the University of Plymouth (2008).
