After initial studies in Sociology in Belgrade, Serbia, Bogomir Doringer went on to receive his Bachelor’s degree from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. A few years later he graduated cum laude from the Master of Film program at the Netherlands Film Academy. Bogomir is doing Artistic Research Ph.D. at the University of Applied Arts Vienna with the ongoing research project „I Dance Alone“ that observes clubbing from a birds-eye-view as a mirror of social and political changes. Investigating collective and individual dynamics of the dance floor. He is co-curator of Frei(T)räume – the public day (Saturday) of this Nights – Stadt Nach Acht conference! Bogomir and Liese Kingma will launch their new project called Space of Urgency, Saturday the 30th of November in Frei(t)räume in Tresor.
Bogomir have been nominated twice for the ‚Venice Biennale – La Biennale di Venezia‘ to represent Serbia with the project Hospitality. This project dealt with (ex)military personnel (NATO/UN) who, upon returning from war missions, experienced health problems and premature death due to the rapid growth of lymphoma and lung cancer. Hospitality explored the claims that the myriad of different diseases the soldiers developed were related to the use of weapons containing depleted uranium (DU). This project required the synthesis of input from different disciplines and experts.
Between 2012-2015 he curated an international series of exhibitions and events tackling the social meaning of the personal image under the title ‚FACELESS‘. The project was inspired by his interest in the recurring presence of hidden faces in contemporary society after September 11th. After this project Bogomir started a yearly collaboration and production of exhibitions and symposiums with the CPDP-Computer Privacy and Data Protection Conferences in Brussels, a non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University.
