Born 1984 in Berlin, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.


Jana Schulz uses photography, video and sound to explore interpersonal communication and relationships, preoccupied with making visible how we navigate everyday conditions. Often working with groups of male protagonists, she eloquently toys with the documentary mode of representation, often digressing between the staged and the non-staged, presenting fictive realities based on observations and combining these with abstract imagery. Schulz´s works operate on the border between truth and fiction, the strange and familiar, the surreal and the all-too-real. Schulz has participated in residencies in Villa Aurora in Los Angeles and ISCP in New York, the Transart Triennale, and exhibited extensively in Germany, including at the Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin and The Museum of Fine Arts Leipzig.

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.
