The ideal woman: As seen through the turbo-folk music genre in Serbia and the ex-Yugoslav region
Una Savić, 2023, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: The purpose of this work is to research the (self)representation of women as a sociocultural and political phenomenon through the popular media in the ex-Yugoslav region from the 1990s to today (2023). The key research point will be Turbo-folk - the dominant musical expression of contemporary Serbian society. The construction of the ˝ideal woman˝ is seen in the early stages of the genre and can be defined through the observation of its first prominent representatives. The society‟s attitude towards women becomes apparent by analyzing popular media outlets, which had the establishment of gender roles as one of their imperatives, while at the same time scrutinizing female perfomers through sexist and obscene tabloid articles. Through careful research, it becomes evident that women are used as a tool for promoting a certain idealogy and gender-desirable behaviour through their media presence. Alternatively, the unbothered women of turbo-folk play along to secure personal capital but eventually re-invent themselves as self-sufficient women who resist the derogatory value system that the genre represents. Such instances are observed and analyzied with the goal of determining the position, role and influence of the genre‟s leading performers and dismantling the archetype of the ˝female singer˝. The encouraged gender-desirable behaviour, promoted through the ˝icons˝ of turbo folk will be studied and used in the construction of my graduation film protagonist.

My Sister Who Travels
Martina Caruso, exhibition catalogue

Abstract: This exhibition offers the viewer new perspectives on this genre, through the landscapes in the work of six women artists. Landscape art is often considered in Romantic terms. Human analogies between the concrete world and the inner world are frequently drawn, and the open space of the land can be seen as a space for imagining, for thinking freely. But these public spaces are also contested sites, layered with histories and the implicit legacies of control, power, occupation and exclusion.
Keywords: landscape photography, history of photography, 19th century, 20th century, 21st century, women, gender, Mediterranean, video art, Halida Boughriet, Corinne Silva, Paola Yacoub, Noor Abed, Jananne Al-Ani, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, Esther Boise Van Deman, migration, capitalism, patriarchy
