Anthropology and Art – what can they learn from each other?

Based on collaborative work with his late wife, Gordana Zivkovic and the pedagogy he has developed for teaching ethnographic sensibility through exercises based on art training, dr. Zivkovic will explore some ways anthropology and art can learn from each other.

Marko Živković is an associate professor in the Anthropology Department, and an adjunct professor in the Art & Design Department at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. He has published on the Balkan political rhetorics (Serbian Dreambook: National Imaginary in the Time of Milošević, Indiana University Press, 2011), on Serbian places of power, Yugoslav car cultures, and on dream as a model for social theory. His research and teaching interests include performative and rhetorical aspects of politics, anthropology of time and space, anthropology of art, and social studies of science, technology and expertise. Marko is bringing his experience in collaborating with visual and theatre artists to his exploration of convergences of ethnographic and artistic perception, training, and sensibility.
