The artist Nebojša Šerić-Shoba (Sarajevo, 1968) was conscripted to fight in defense of Sarajevo during the Bosnian Civil War – an experience that profoundly impacted his life and subsequent work. Underlying his practice is the renunciation of the idea of a fixed national history; he is concerned with the constant flux between place and its past. He has exhibited internationally at venues including Jeude Paume, Paris; Kunsthalle, Bern; Mass MoCA, Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris; MUMOK, Wien; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; P.S. 1, and the 50th Venice Biennale. Shoba lives in New York City.
