Mak Hubjer (born 1993) is a Bosnian-Herzegovinian visual artist and artist of social practice. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo in 2018 and obtained his master's degree from the Art Academy in Split, Department of Painting. He is a member of the Croatian Association of Visual Artists-Split.[1] His work has been exhibited at numerous national and international exhibitions. His artistic practices encompass both performative and visual elements, including paintings and mixed-material installations. In 2016, he founded the Brodac Gallery[2] Sarajevo and continues to serve as its director.


Hubjer is known for his diverse range of work that explores the relationships between public space, memory, and monuments. His practice delves into the phenomenology of socio-political relations, often challenging and questioning conventional perceptions. Drawing inspiration from urban settings[3], Hubjer engages with public spaces to investigate the deconstruction, revelation, or revitalization of the connections between monuments, public spaces, and collective memory[4]. While his work draws from universally familiar concepts, it is often deeply rooted in his immediate surroundings. In recent years, Hubjer has drawn inspiration from his local community, aiming to present competing memories that exist within other societies.

Hubjer is acutely aware that the links between identity and monuments constitute not only socio-political borders but also cultural and semiotic boundaries[5]. These connections evoke imaginative spaces that vary among the communities that lay claim to them. In response, he introduces alternative artistic approaches to unveil the underlying tensions not only in certain historical narratives conveyed through art in urban settings but also in the unpredictable processes of distortion, reinterpretation, and erasure that occur.
