Jasmina Cibic (b. Ljubljana 1979) is a London based artist who works in performance, installation and film, employing a range of activity, media and theatrical tactics to redefine or reconsider a specific ideological formation and its framing devices such as art and architecture. Her work draws a parallel between the construction of national culture and its use value for political aims, encouraging the viewer to consider the timelessness of psychological and soft power mechanisms that authoritarian structures utilise in their own reinsertion and reinvention.

Jasmina represented Slovenia at the 55th Venice Biennial with her project For Our Economy and Culture.

Her recent exhibitions include solo shows at: Phi Foundation Montreal; BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art Gateshead; Museum Haus Esters Krefeld; Aarhus 2017; Esker Foundation Calgary; Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb; Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade; Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina; MGLC Ljubljana and Ludwig Museum Budapest along with group exhibitions at: MOMA NY; MUMA Monash Museum; CCS BARD; Guangdong Museum of Art China; Pera Museum Istanbul; La Panacee Montpellier; City Gallery Wellington; MSUM Ljubljana; MNHA Luxembourg; Joanneum Museum Graz; and California College of the Arts.

Cibic’s films have been screened at: FIAC Paris; Pula Film Festival; HKW Berlin; CCA Laznia; Les Rencontres Internationales Paris; Dokfest Kassel; and Copenhagen International Documentary Festival. Cibic has been shortlisted for the Jarman Award (2018) and was the winner of the MAC International Ulster Bank and Charlottenborg Fonden awards (2016). Her upcoming exhibitions include Steirischer Herbst ’19 and solo shows at CCA Glasgow and macLyon.

Cibic’s recent monograph Spielraum is published by BALTIC and Distanz and NADA by Kerber Verlag and Kunstmuseen Krefeld.
