Jusuf Hadžifejzovič is the initiator of the "Yugoslavian Documenta" project, as well as the Sarajevo Biennial of Modern Art, which launched the 1980s local Sarajevo art community to the very top of the existing Yugoslav, and even world art scene. Since then, he has continued to be regarded as the most provocative Bosnian-Herzegovinian artist of the middle generation.

He is one of the co-founders of the Ars Aevi Collection of the then-forming Sarajevo Museum of Contemporary Art. Widely known as a performer, he also deals with installation art and "depography", lately even analytical painting. He has participated in numerous important international contemporary art exhibitions, from Berlin to Korea.


Jusuf Hadžifejzovič (1956) is an internationally acclaimed Bosnian-Herzegovinian artist, born in Prijepolje, Serbia, who has been living and working between Sarajevo and Antwerp for the past few years. He completed the School of Applied Arts Sarajevo, then graduated in 1980 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, under the mentorship of professor Stojan Ćelić. He continued and completed his postgraduate studies at the State Academy of Arts in Düsseldorf, Germany.
