Art as Social Strategy. 2001-2011 was published by Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne. The work of the Montenegrin artist Irena Lagator Pejović develops around the themes of space soliciting the interaction of the viewer. Her installations, videos, photographs and drawings reflect on topics like the perception and understanding of reality, individual and collective identity and the responsibility of society and its single members. Her practice embedded in criticality and poetic reconstruction of reality focuses on relations that evidence transformation of society, life, art and culture, promoting new horizons. While addressing global issues, her exhibitions should be understood as universal propositions aiming to investigate the limits of art and the limits of the society.
