Joint CeCIL/Centre for Critical Thought Event
CeCIL Speaker Nights

A Kent Centre for Critical International Law (CeCIL) Speaker Night joint event with the Centre for Critical Thought: Bogomir Doringer (mixed media artist), Hospitality (on medical conditions arising from the use of depleted uranium in armed conflict) and FACELESS: Re-inventing privacy through subversive media strategies

Bogomir Doringer, bio and project descriptionsBogomir Doringer is an Amsterdam-based mixed media artist whose work documents social-political interactions, ranging from the effects of armed conflict upon bodies to surveillance, privacy, and the interaction of crowds. After initial studies in Sociology in Belgrade, Serbia, Bogomir received his BA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, and went on to graduate cum laude from the Master of Film program at the Netherlands Film Academy.Bogomir has been nominated twice for the 'Venice Biennale - La Biennale di Venezia' to represent Serbia with the project Hospitality. This project dealt with (ex)military personnel (NATO/UN) who, upon returning from war missions, experienced health problems and premature death due to the rapid growth of lymphoma and lung cancer. Hospitality explored the claims that the myriad of different diseases the soldiers developed was related to the use of weapons containing depleted uranium (DU). This project required the synthesis of input from different disciplines and experts.Between 2012-2015, Bogomir curated an international series of exhibitions and events addressing the social meaning of the personal image under the title FACELESS. The project was inspired by his interest in the recurring presence of hidden faces in contemporary society after September 11th. He began a collaboration and production of exhibitions and symposiums with the CPDP-Computer Privacy and Data Protection Conferences in Brussels, a non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. This resulted in the publication FACELESS: Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies. Bogomir is currently undertaking an Artistic Research Ph.D. at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, with the ongoing research project I Dance Alone that observes clubbing from a birds-eye-view as a mirror of social and political changes, investigating the collective and individual dynamics of the dance floor. He has been curating many programs and talks on the topic of the dance of urgency, club culture as empowering phenomena, and contemporary rituals of dancing. Bogomir's projects have been funded by, amongst other organizations, the 'BKVB fonds', 'Mondriaan funding', 'Media Fonds', and the 'Ministry of Culture of Serbia'. In 2017 Bogomir was awarded the '3Package Deal' for top talent with the project I Dance Alone by the 'Amsterdam Fonds for Art', The Netherlands Film Academy, EYE Film Institute Museum and IDFA documentary lab.
