Miliskovic has earned his Master degree from Hochschule für Bildende Künste , Hamburg , class of Jeanne Faust (2012). Communicating with the audience, both in a direct and tinged with mystification manner , the artist uses body and identity as the main media. Creating subsequent characters , he faces with their national background. Miliskovic sees his work as a system of designated and highly self controlled situations in progression through which he is passing , aiming to leave a permanent trace and bring his own standards . Branko Miliskovic is particularly devoted to a long term works, living installation, cabaret, film and video , lately getting more interested in ”individual and social choreography” as well as ´´the power of repetition´´.
