Jana Honegger


Jana° likes to stretch the boundaries of our expectations.

She enjoys bringing together differing social elements using art as the media or prompt.

Jana° applies social synthesis in art to include the audience into the process.



The HeK (House of electronic arts) asked jana° to organise the first ever Swiss Internet Yami-Ichi, an invention of the artists collective IDPW from Japan,  which took place in April 2017. There is a report of this event in a blog entry –> here.











30 July 2016, SGMK 10 year festival in Zurich. Jana° organised and hosted a podiums discussion about art, technology and politics. Where are the cross overs, where are the limitations.

On introduction a short video clip showing images and sound samples of a Syrian refugee and her journey into Switzerland. Images that are seen every day as news reports can be filtered and altered to make otherwise gut wrenching scenes more bearable, allowing the viewer to digest and process the content. Art can assist politics. How do politics affect art?
