Dakic studied at the Academy of Art in Sarajevo, the Academy of Art in Belgrade, and the Academy of Art in Dusseldorf. Danica Dakic's work investigates the interfaces of cultural and personal, and political and geographical identity. Using a variety of media (photography, film, video and sound installations), she interrogates the construction of identity and "home" that results from the impacts of social change, globalisation, and war, on the basis of her own experience of emigration. A recurring element is her insistence on the decisive importance of language, the spoken word, in the formation of identity.
