Marija Bozinovska Jones’ work revolves around identity formation in an era of technocapitalist amplification and perpetual online presence. She explores society’s anthropological adaptations intertwined in the framework of networked capitalism – its coping mechanism of coming to terms with challenged ontological axioms of cognition, affect and memory.
Her recent interest is the relationship between technology, gender and nature and she explores the self by introducing ‘zen optimisation’.
Bozinovska Jones’ past practice has encompassed co-producing radioplay for Deutschlandradio Kultur, collaboration with the macedonian activist choir ‘Freedom Square’, participatory experiences at Grimmuseum (Berlin) and Green Ray (London), internet based tactical media DreamHolidaysUnlimited.com and curating event with FEED Berlin. Solo exhibitions include: Fischer und Fischer (Berlin), MKC (Skopje), KNIPSU (Bergen) and group shows at Rockelmann&, Arcadia Missa, St. James Church and Elephant Hotel in London.
Under the alias MBJ Wetware, Jones develops immersive live performances simulating heterotopian landscapes and virtual representations to be collectively inhabited. Festival performances include commission for Club Transmediale performed at Berghain, presentation at Vorspiel and Transmediale, MIRA/ Scope Sessions and DE: SONANZ. Past musical collaborators include JG Biberkopf, A Guy Called Gerald and Mind:Body:Fitness/ Phoebe Kiddo among others. Currently she works with Iydes, contributing towards the 3D Additivist Manifesto.
