Lana Čmajčanin was born in 1983 in Sarajevo in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Her main topics are the questions of history and memory, trauma, violence, migration. In 2011, with Adela Jušić, she created a video-performance „Ja više neću pričati o ratu“ (I Will Never Talk About the War Again), in which they point to the need to face the past, as it is still present in all spheres of life. In „Geometrija mjesta“ (Geometry of Place) and „Nijeme karte“ (Blind Maps) from 2014, Čmajčanin uses historical cartography of the Bosnian and Herzegovian space to question the notion of boundaries, and uses old school supplies, overhead projector and blind maps, and makes the visitor interpret the given space of the artwork. She is one of the members and founders of the CRVENA Association for culture and art. Her art is activist, engaged and calls to look at the surrounding world with all its inequality, injustice, and actions from the past with which we must face.
