I am a writer and director. Currently I am working on a short TV documentary for NZZ Format. My first book «Nöd us Zucker» got published in 2022. I graduated in visual anthropology at Goldsmiths University in 2018, London.

I worked as a journalist in radio, TV and online media (NZZ Format, 3sat, SRF, Arte). Besides that, I work on different documentary films and film projects as a script supervisor.

My artistic work is mostly autobiographical and consits of pieces of writing that are diary-like. They are led by intuition and instant emotions. My visual practice is playful and includes experiment and coincidence, trial and error. I like to work autoethnographically.

My parents are from the former Yugoslavia. I was born and raised in Switzerland. Quesions of identity and belonging are key to my artistic work.

I love deep conversations and small talk. If you want to get in touch, think twice, then send me an email: lidijaburcak@gmail.com.

Lots of love,
