Sanja Andjelković is the winner of the 2023 Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos Award.

Sanja Anđelković is an audio-visual and textual investigative artist based in Novi Sad and Vienna. Her investigations usually include a tint of discomfort. She doesn’t investigate murders per se but makes connections between the current world order with an allegorical/analogical world order and its murders/ suppressions/ marginalizations. She is interested in parallels and examines how the idea of ‘home’ changes within the historical, geographical, social, and environmental context. She draws references from different current phenomena and works with archives from different state institutions to create multilayered works.

Sanja’s professional artistic endeavors include art residencies with British Council/BIOS/ ATOLYE (UK,GR,TUR), Risk Change (Budapest, Hungary, 2019); collaborations with the Filmuni Konrad Wolf Babelsberg, Potsdam; mentions at Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria, 2021); awards from Prince Claus Fund (Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2021), The 59th October Salon (Belgrade Biennial, Serbia, 2022), Secondary Archive Award (Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation, Poland, 2022) and Mangelos award (2023). Currently, she is cooperating with anthropologist Hsiu-ju Stacy Lo on a speculative CGI feature film.
