Lidija Krienzer-Radojević is a PhD student at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz. Combining a historical materialist literature with a dialectical approach to institutional analysis, she is working on paths and modalities of transformations that have taken place within the cultural sphere in post-socialist Slovenia. Her broader research interest concerns the social integration of capitalist relations into social life. During her participation at the Workers Punks University platform (2005-2013) she conceptualized and organized various educational programs in the field of art and cultural theory. As a member of IG Kultur Steiermark-board she is politically engaged in finding new strategies of communication between cultural administrations and independent cultural and art producers.
