Dr Uros Cvoro is a senior lecturer at the UNSW Art & Design, and is a researcher at Contemporary Culture, Art & Politics (CCAP).
Cvoro’s current research analyses artistic strategies in unstable ‘transitional’ sites such as ex-Yugoslavia. His research aims to uncover the artistic and cultural tactics used to deal with the multiple challenges of post-global exchange (conflict, economic collapse, climate change, migration, destruction of welfare state etc).
Cvoro has published in peer-reviewed journals such as AAANZ Art Journal, CAA Art Journal and Social Text and has presented at conferences in Australia and internationally. He is the author of The Changing Roles of the National Museum of Australia in Creating Australian Identity: How the Politics of a Nation Shaped Its Culture (Edwin Mellen Press, 2012) and Turbo-Folk Music and Cultural Representations of National Identity in Former Yugoslavia (Ashgate, 2014).
