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.

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.

From the introduction by Tanja Ostojić:

Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić is an interdisciplinary, participatory research project, in which I utilise on-line social media networks and collaborate with women of different generations, diverse social backgrounds and different nationalities with whom I shares the same first name and the family name. Via personalised sociological research and direct social exchange I´ve created maps that document how approximately 30 name sisters have been migrating and what identity issues, gender issues and labour conditions concern us.

In the frame of the project, Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić, I had an opportunity to meet a number of my name sisters in Lörrach & Berlin (Germany), Belgrade & Kikinda (Serbia), Niksić (Montenegro), Split (Croatia), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Banjaluka & Bratunac (Bosnia), etc. We socialised over a cup of coffee, took a walk together, cook or eaten together, visited our favourite place, exchanged favourite recipes and engaged in conversation. I have organised and was leading several events with some of my name-sisters such as: Creative workshop in terracotta, hosted by the international symposium of sculpture TERRA (Kikinda, Serbia 2013) and the Talk Show “Lexicon of Tanja Ostojić”, HKW Berlin…
