Dejan Kaludjerović

B. 1972, Belgrade, ex-Yugoslavia

Lives and works in Vienna and Belgrade

Dejan Kaludjerović was born in Belgrade, ex-Yugoslavia. For his achievements in the visual arts,  he has been granted honorary Austrian citizenship. He studied in the class of Erwin Wurm at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, and gained an MA in Visual Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 2004.

Since the beginning of his career in Belgrade in the mid-1990s, Dejan has been exploring the relationship between consumerism and childhood, and analyzing identity formation and the stability of representational forms. Most of his paintings, drawings, objects, videos and installations employ the processes of recycling, copying and reenacting, thus creating patterns that simulate mechanical reproduction, and criticize the homogeneity embedded in popular culture.

Kaludjerović's work is part of many private and public collections, among others, MUSA, KONTAKT, STRABAG collection and collection of the Artothek des Bundes in Vienna and Salzburg Museum der Moderne, October Salon Collection,  City Museum Belgrade, APT Berlin etc.
