Olja Triaška Stefanović received a Fulbright scholarship

We would like to cordially congratulate to our colleague Olja Triaška Stefanović, a head of the Department of Photography and New Media, who received a prestigious Fulbright scholarship for her research and teaching stay in the United States.

"I was awarded a 2022 – 2023 Fulbright Slovak Scholar Program. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work for four months as a visiting researcher and visual artist at the Parsons School of Design in New York with visual artist and professor Anthony Aziz, and later for two months at the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco with photographer and professor Linda Connor. "

In her interdisciplinary art project, Olja Triaška Stefanović focuses on the topics of the Cold War - its past, origins and current form, as well as the metaphor of the Iron Curtain, geopolitics, mapping of laboratories and scientific spaces from this period in the USA and Europe. In addition, she will address the possibilities and methodology of interdisciplinary art projects.

At the host universities, which are among the best not only in the US but also in the world rankings (in 2021, the Parsons School of Design in New York was declared the third in the world and in the US the first in art colleges according to QS World University Rankings), she will have an opportunity to gain new pedagogical experience and to directly participate as a guest critique with local students.

Upon return, she will present the acquired photographic material and research in the form of an author's book and exhibition.
