Ana Filipovic is an architect, spatial designer, and independent researcher based in Berlin. Her work focuses on spatial manifestations of power structures in society, and the collective imaginaries that emerge out of them. Her work, which spans between art and architecture, theory and practice, uses various media to critically assess built environments and forces that shape them. The recurring issue of her interest is the relationship to the notions of private, public, and common property in the condition of the current commodification of everything, especially in the domain of urban housing. Since 2014 Ana has collaborated with Philipp Mecke on the range of architectural projects and spatial intervention, under the moniker IF/THEN. Their research-based design practice examines the spaces, materialities, and textures of the dominant forces at work, and creates the counter ones. Previously she was associated with several architectural practices in Belgrade, Brooklyn, Frankfurt, and Berlin. Since 2020, Ana has been a part of s-o-f-t.agency, a diasporic group of female architects, artists, curators, scholars, and writers working with spatial practices.Ana holds a diploma degree in architecture from Belgrade University. She obtained a master’s degree in Architecture and Critical Spatial Practice from Städelschule in Frankfurt, which was supported by a two-year DAAD scholarship. In 2018-’19 she was a fellow in Architecture at the Akademie Schloss Solitude. Since 2019 she is a registered freelance architect in Berlin.
