Jovana practices art in a variety of media, and her research focusses on the subject of the ‘invisible yet present’. She works on the translation between different media or different perceptual perspectives, individually or in groups with art professionals and amateurs, those of different backgrounds and diverse (perceptual) abilities esp. visually-impaired people, rethinking the ways of perceiving, exchanging, connecting and creating on a personal and social level. Her activities also include participatory art mediation and inclusion within the artistic field, having worked with museums, galleries, societies and educational centres, amongst others NGBK, Berlin Biennale, Akademie der Künste in Berlin.
