Dunja Kukovec (Ljubljana) is a curator, publicist and producer. She has curated, co-curated and organized numerous cultural events and exhibitions, mostly in Slovenia, but also abroad. Selected projects: co-curator of Belgrade October Salon (2014), co-founder of the international feminist project Bring-In, Take-Out Living Archive (2012 till present), curator of the international exhibitions Get Together (2006) and Area Kolaborativa (2004) at Skuc Gallery, Ljubljana; Coded Cultures (2004) at Freiraum Museumsquartier, Vienna; Share! Like A Receipt! (2004) at Gallery P74, Ljubljana; international exhibitions at the 12th and 13th Computer Art Festivals, Maribor (2005, 2006); and the Pixxelpoint festival of digital arts in Nova Gorica (2004). She worked as an interim curator at Manifesta 3 and an assistant curator for Igor Zabel (1958–2005) at the Venice Biennial (2003); and in 2002–2003, she worked as an intern curator at the Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana. From 2004 to 2005, she worked at the Cankarjev Dom Cultural and Congress Centre in Ljubljana as a project manager for the International Film Festival and the Documentary Film Festival.
Dunja also worked with the Sarajevo Contemporary Art Center, and was a two-time member of the jury for the Zvono Award (2010, 2011). Currently, she is a member of the CRVENA Association Sarajevo and, together with Jelena Petrović, she is a co-directress of the MINA Institute Ljubljana. As a society nagger, art distopist and non-academic creative thinker, she likes to write tricky, poetic and emotionally loaded texts on contemporary art. Finally, she settled down as the member of the feminist curatorial group Red Min(e)d (together with Katja Kobolt, Danijela Dugandžić Živanović and Jelena Petrović).
Katja Kobolt and Dunja Kukovec curated the 13th, 14th and pre-prepared the programme of the 15th City of Women Festivals. During that time and together with Sabina Potočki, the City of Women joined the A Space For Live Art programme (http://www.aspaceforliveart.org/) and also intensified the programme outside the festival frame in Slovenia as well as abroad (e.g., the exhibitions: Humour Works, Ljubljana, Bratislava, Sarajevo, Berlin; and Natural Relations, Škuc Gallery, Ljubljana). Dunja and Katja aspired City of Women to be an open platform for curatorial collaborations and activist actions. Since 2011, they have been collaborating together again within the feminist curatorial group Red Min(e)d, working on a continuous Living Archive, an interactive platform and a multi-layered research site that explores feminist principles, methods and paradigms of feminist exhibition-making and archives within contemporary art (http://bringintakeout.wordpress.com/).
