Lives and works Frankfurt am Main/Germany

Jana Hartmann is a visual artist from Frankfurt, Germany. In her long-term projects across media and conceptual paradigms she critically reflects our notions of nature, as manifested among others in the natural sciences, in virtual or urban spheres. Embracing her belief that our complex world can be best comprehended through transdisciplinary exchange, Hartmann’s works are founded on multi-perspective research and a broad dialogue with natural scientists, philosophers and historians. She was as a visiting student at Cranbrook Art Academy, Bloomfield, USA, before receiving a scholarship from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid, Spain, for their European Master of Contemporary Photography program.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
