Daniela Krajčová

Daniela Krajčová (1983, Žilina) is interested in socially based artistic projects. Her process includes the use of experimental documentary strategies, animation, drawing and installation. She uses active participation and investigation and oral history to shape society through a more critical view of Slovakia’s complicated past and present. In addition, she also explores global themes such as immigration issues in France (project The length of their stay, 2008) and in Slovakia (Slovak for Asylum Seekers, 2010). She used the everyday process of drawing in the public space as the strategy of research about the decline of the marketplace in Mexico City due to mafia gang violence (Marketplace Morelos, 2010). She worked with the theme of the slovak nurses of seniors in Austria (Nach Wien, 2012). Intolerance and rasism towards different ethnical minority and its specifity on the local kontext of the region is explored in the work Varuj (2012) about the gipsies in Ilija. She is working on the thesis reflecting the local history about the jewish comunity in three slovak cities, Topoľčany, Banská Štiavnica and Žilina.
