Dante Buu (Rožaje, Montenegro) is an artist, storyteller and performer.

His autobiographical work, intertwined with the lives of others, invites us on journeys of love and resistance. Spanning from embroidery and text to video, film, photography and performance, Dante’s world is a voice for the non-normative.

As the only artist from a Muslim background to ever come out as gay publicly in the Balkans, Dante is a pioneer freed from the suffering of form and thus paves the way for generations to come.
