Nika Autor pursued her BA and MA studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana and obtained her PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She explores forms of experimental and documentary film creativity focusing on film-essay, photo-essay, and video installations. The focus of her work is research into invisibilities/inaudibilities in relation to concealed topics of the forgotten past and the silenced present. Her work focuses on the production of particular images, specific constructions of collective memory as well as personal/oral narratives. Her works examine asylum and migration policies, workers’ rights and politics of memory. She is part of the collective Newsreel Front (Obzorniška Fronta), an informal collective of workers hailing from film theory and art practice fields.
