Miodrag Kuč is an interdisciplinary artist and urban theorist trained as architect / urban planner in various cultural settings. His work explores the role of ephemeral structures in uncertain urban conditions and spatial appropriations of marginal social groups. He is founder of the studio ParaArtFormations, which moves at the intersection of urban studies, performative-planning, artistic interventions and micro politics.Operating exclusively in indeterminate spaces, ParaArtFormations develop site-specific toolboxes that replace conventional planning instruments based on control.
As a member of Laboratory of Critical Urbanism (EHU Vilnius), he teaches Critical Cartography at the Department of Visual&Cultural Studies and occasionally tutors at CANactions school of Urban Studies (Kiev).Currently he works as project coordinator at ZK/U (Centre for Art and Urbanistics) Berlin, exploring new ways of knowledge production through the lens of critical urban pedagogy.
