Ieva Sriebaliūtė (b. 1993, LT) is a political scientist, holding a BA in Political Science at Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Science and an MA in European Politics at Lund University, Sweden. Her field of research includes the study of memory and identity, the relation between politics and art. As part of artist collective Money Haven, Ieva has been awarded the jury’s special mention in the Lithuanian Young Artist ‘JCDecaux Prize’ in 2018 at the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius. During the Programme, she will research a case study of civil cooperation, which occurred during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict during which the ethnic minorities persecuted by opposite warring sides swapped their villages, houses and lives. In the course of the artistic research, Ieva will explore the theme of frozen wars and conflicts, looking at post-conflict everyday life and human longing.
