Pavle Banović was nominated finalist for the 2022 Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos award.
"In my work, I try to examine different ways of existing and doing today and rethink them. Also, how to discover relationships between individuals and ideologies and how can these two destabilize each other. How do authentic life experiences and narrations oppose dominant structures? In the past two years, more specifically, my interest and research are mostly related to technological advancements in this context. I am focused on how contemporary technologies interfere with, and shape, our lives or life experiences and the other way around."
