Abstract

The author introduces a number of Serbian women artists who performed in Belgrade during the turbulent times of Slobodan Milosevic's authoritarian regime. Raising their voices in protest, these women risked their lives in opposing Milosevic's rule. The author also writes about memories of NATO's bombing of Serbia and Belgrade in 1999 and of her own exile, which became a context for her scholarly writing and performance.
