Marta Popivoda (Belgrade, 1982) is a film and video maker, but also a cultural worker from Belgrade. She is part of the TkH collective of theorists and artists (TkH-Walking Theory), which deals with the problematics of performance paradigm in art, culture and theory.
In her solo projects she explores cinema as a medium and format of contemporary art and as a tool of knowledge production. Her most widely known work is illegal_cinema (2007-…), which has been presented in France, Turkey, Spain, Croatia and Serbia. Her stance is of an Eastern European artist who prefers to use already existing materials from the history of film and media in (post)producing her own work. Her work was presented in exhibitions of photography, installation art and video. She also collaborates in theatre performances and contemporary opera as a video artist. She occasionally publishes theoretical texts and reviews.
