Session 39: Visiting Artist Talk with Jana Stepanova (CZ)
Jana Stepanova is a Prague-based visual artist and designer who participated in a three-month residency in Zurich by a Swiss foundation ProHelvetia (June–August 2010). In her work, Jana often subverts social reality, control and system as well as commonly accepted values by releasing fake websites, magazines or creating fake identities. At the time of her presentation, the Czech ministry of Labour and Social Affairs filed criminal charges against Jana concerning her Internet art project “rent-a-baby”.
