Sara Oklobdzija (1980, Belgrade, Serbia) is conceptual artist, performer, curator and an artist-producer, currently based in Brussels .She received university education both in Serbia and Belgium. She graduated Drama in class of prof.Dugalic (Faculty of Dramatic Arts, Belgrade) and she holds master’s degrees in Philosophy (University of Belgrade), Audio-Visual Arts (Faculty of Dramatic Arts, Belgrade) and in Film and Visual Culture (University of Antwerp). Her research in the fields of arts and culture continuously questions the intricate web of relations between migration, community (re)building, equality and collectivity.
From 2010 onwards, Sara developed numerous art-base- social frameworks where both, personal and collective traumas, were given a space. Sara increasingly combines her practice as an artist and programme-maker with her work as a producer. In 2019, she joined ROBIN as its general manager. In this capacity, she oversees the financial, administrative and production-level implementation of both concrete art projects and the ever-evolving overarching artistic vision she helps to shape.
In November 2020 she founded KOROW imagined to be a center for cultural decontamination, social diagnostic and social correction. In this framework Sara is currently working on a doctoral proposal under the working title The School of Two-sided Integration or How to Build a Functional Host Society.
