Zlatko Ćosić is a video artist born in Yugoslavia whose work includes short films, video installations, theater and architectural projections, and audio-visual performances. Ćosić’s experience as a refugee influenced and shaped the content of his early artistic practice. His work began with the challenges of
immigration and shifting identities, evolving to socio-political issues related to injustice, consumerism, and climate crisis. Ćosić’s artwork has been shown in over fifty countries in exhibitions such as the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Video Vortex XI at Kochi-Muzeris Biennale, ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Torrance Art
Museum, /si:n/ Video Art and Performance Biennale, Institut Für Alles Mögliche, The Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Kunstverein Kärnten, Art Speaks Out at UN Climate Change Conference, and the Research Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale. He was a prize winner at the St. Louis International Film Festival, Macon Film Festival, Sunscreen Film Festival, and Networked Disruptions exhibition as part of Finger
Lakes Environmental Film Festival. Ćosić has received grants including the WaveMaker Grants at Locust Projects, a Kranzberg Grant from Laumeier Sculpture Park, and the Regional Arts Commission Artist Fellowship.
