Tanja Ostojic would like to hear from anyone performing this delegated piece: Please post your contributions in the form of images, notes or texts to this blog, or upload your video clips to Misplaced Women? account at Vimeo. For further guidelines please send a mail to: misplacedwomen[at]yahoo.com

Misplaced Women? is a delegated performance in which women volunteers carry packed suitcases in the public spaces repeatedly pausing to pack and unpack as they move about the city.
In this project, Tanja Ostojic enacts an everyday life activity that signifies a displacement as common to transients, migrants, and disaster refugees, as it is to the itinerant artist traveling the world to earn her living. Ostojic’s street performance continues themes of migration, desired mobility, and relations of power and vulnerability in regards to the mobile female body, found in much of her previous work.
