About Maja Milovanovic

Maja currently working on the project “THE MYTH OF THE CONSTRUCTOR”. It is based on the re-articulation and the revival of Luka Popovic's intimate moments and their
correlation with historical visual patterns. The whole project is based on the diary which was written by Popovic,
dated from March 1941 til November 1942, as well as his photographs (dated in 1952-1980).
• Luka Popovic was born in 1926. and died in 2006. He was a civil engineer. He worked on the construction of
numerous significant buildings, and infrastructure on the territory of Yugoslavia and beyond.His writing and
photos were accidentally found and saved from destruction. He wrote and took photographs, as he says “as a
hobby and with love” (quote from the genealogy of the Popovic family).
• The works represent an interpretation, in fact, the reproduction of specific contents from Luka Popovic's diary and
photos, and his intimate perception through two of his life stages (adolescence and adulthood), in relation to the
two key historical periods (the beginning of WWII and the golden age of the revival and the development of the
socialist system), significant in the context of social and personal identity.


Maja was born on May 1st 1977, is currently living and working in Belgrade as Visual artist and Professor of Art Drawing and painting in School of design (Secondary school- college).
