Luiza Margan, born in Rijeka, Croatia, holds a master degree in visual arts
from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana (2006) and the Academy of Fine
Arts in Vienna (2013).
In her art practice, she investigates the socio economic complexities of public
space, cultural work and the condition of labor within changing technologies.
Using archives, field research as well as documentary visual and sound
recording, Margan creates a critical understanding of her subjects, creating
sculptural, printed and video works, or performative actions within public
In her recent work, she looks at the relation of historical political ideologies
and their role in the construction of public space and national identity through
architecture and monuments, with a focus on socialist legacy and the socialist
transition into the commercialization of public space and land.
Margan has exhibited widely in international context, most recently in “The
Value of Freedom”, 21 Haus, Museum of Contemporary Art in Vienna, “On the
Shoulders of Fallen Giants”, Industrial Art Biennale, Istria, Croatia and at
