Nika Radić was born in Zagreb, Croatia in 1968 where she graduated in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts. She has also earned a degree in art history from the University of Vienna. In her video works, multimedia installations and photographs she focuses on the subjects of communication and the ways art can document reality. She chooses particular moments that everyone experiences similarly, but is interested in how different people interpret it in their own individual way. She has also written on the subject and her texts were published in books and magazines internationally.
