Suzana Milevska appointed for first Endowed Professorship for Central and South Eastern European Art Histories at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna
Congratulations! Together with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, we announce the appointment of Suzana Milevska as Endowed Professor for Central and South Eastern European Art Histories. After receiving the Igor Zabel Award for Culture and Theory last November, Suzana Milevska now has a one-year-professorship (October 2013 – July 2014) at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria.
The Endowed Professorship was advertised by this spring for the first time and addressed to scientists with outstanding scientific qualifications in the field of Central and South Eastern European Art Histories, giving particular consideration to the period after 1960. In terms of an extended concept of Art History the Professorship position was designed to interrelate with other fields of Art History, particularly the critical reflection of economic, political, cultural and queer-feminist context as well as postcolonial theory formations and institutional critique. With Suzana Milevska the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna is proud to welcome a well-known and profound expert in the field of Central and South Eastern European Art.
Suzana Milevska is a visual culture theorist and curator. She holds a Ph.D. in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths College in London. She taught art history and analysis of styles at the Accademia Italiana Skopje and she was its Dean. She was the Director of the Centre for Visual and Cultural Research at the Euro-Balkan Institute in Skopje (2006 – 2008). Suzana Milevska was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar (2004) and P. Getty Curatorial Research Fellow (2001). Her academic researching and curating interests include postcolonial critique of hegemonic power in art, the complex relations between gender theory and feminism(s) in art practices, socially engaged and participatory projects. Since 1992 she curated over 70 international exhibitions, mostly committed to searching for new curatorial formats and models of presenting critical curatorial discourses and socially and politically engaged art practices.
