Tanja Ostojić is an extraordinary and influential Berlin-based, Serbian artist who, since 1994, has created research-led, performative projects that engage with issues of gender politics and feminism, of migration and displacement, and of labour. Lexicon of Tanjas Ostojić brings these strands of her practice together in a multi-disciplinary, process-based, transnational project from a network of women around the world all named Tanja Ostojić.   – Lois Keidan, Live Art Development Agency, London

 

Most importantly, although transindividuality was always inscribed, its potentiality became visible and comprehensible only through the ‘transformative encounters’, the mutual introductions, and social exchanges during the one-on-one conversations, co-production processes, and public events of the Lexicon of Tanjas Ostojić project. Thus a new sentiment of solidarity with the same (the name), but different (subjectivity and personality) has emerged. It can be read between the lines of this hypertext, the Lexicon with only one entry: Tanja Ostojić, but with so many homonyms and a number of complex cross-references and interpretations that together create an ethnographic and psycho-geographic hypertext available for further research.
– Dr Suzana Milevska, art theorist and curator, Skopje

Tanja Ostojić´s work in The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin

I am pleased that my work “Politics of Queer Curatorial Positions: After Rosa von Praunheim, Fassbinder and Bridge Markland” (in collaboration with Dr M. Grzinic) has been included in the “Homosexuality_ies” exhibition that opens today in The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin. The exhibition is covering a total area of 1600 square meters, and documents 150 years of the history, politics and culture of homosexual women and men in Germany. The exhibition shows how same-sex sexuality and non-conformist gender identities have been criminalized through legislation, pathologized in medicine and excluded from society. It traces the legislative development of Paragraph 175 of the German penal code, which made “homosexual acts” punishable by law. Paragraph 175 took effect in 1872, underwent massive harshening in the Nazi era and was retained thereafter, being definitively voided in 1994. In addition to social repression, the exhibition also addresses the liberation movements of gay men and lesbian women, movements which took on a new dynamic after the legal liberalization in the 1960ies and transformed society‘s understanding of sex and gender identity.

Queer

Works by international artists such as Monica Bonvicini, Louise Bourgeois, Heather Cassils, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset, Nicole Eisenman, Lee Lozano, Jeanne Mammen, Zanele Muholi, Henrik Olesen, Tanja Ostojić and Andy Warhol comment on the exhibition‘s themes in a variety of ways.

The section of the exhibition on view at the Deutsches Historisches Museum focuses on historical developments in the fields of society, politics, art, law and science since the “discovery” of homosexuality in the mid-19th century. The section of the exhibition on view at the Schwules Museum* consists of contemporary artworks and addresses the present and future of gender codes and sexualities.
