Braco Dimitrijevic was born in 1948 in Sarajevo, Ex-Yugoslavia. He lives and works in Paris.

Braco Dimitrijevic is one of the pioneers of conceptual art in Ex Yugoslavia. He gained an international reputation in the seventies with his Casual passer-by series, in which gigantic photo portraits of anonymous people were displayed on prominent facades and billboards in European and American cities. He also incorporates in his installations original paintings borrowed from museum collections. Braco Dimitrijevic’s work, as well as his theoretical book Tractatus Post Historicus, (1976) were an important influence on two tendencies that dominate artistic discourse today: critical practices in public space and interventions in museum collections. Artist books are an important aspect of his practice.
