Branka Čolić, German Croatian or a German native daughter of Yugoslav immigrants, knows those not completely restricted, yet hidden spaces of performance art as well as those of pop culture – from the inside.
Language is her preferred artistic medium and material. Branka writes, sings, performs, makes films and has a YouTube channel. Her works on paper – called texts, for short – will also be available in print soon. She studied acting, chemistry and art in Bremen and Hamburg. From 2004 to 2010 Branka was a fellow of the Cusanuswerk. In 2005, together with Anneli Käsmayr and Michael Rieken, she received the Prize for Fine Arts Bremen. For the concept "Brankart - self-optimization as an artist" she received the video art promotion award 2019.
At the moment she is working on the film "povratak -–Wiederkehr", which received the film start promotion in 2020.
