Sanja Iveković (Zagreb, Croatia, 1949) studied graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb between 1968 and 1971. Her art production uses a wide range of media such as photography, performance, video and installations. She lectures at the Centre for Women’s Studies in Zagreb since 1994, and in the late eighties she was a founder and member of a number of women’s non-governmental organisations in Croatia, such as the Elektra Women’s Art Centre and B.a.B.e., a women’s rights group.
