Janne Nora Kummer is a director, performer and multimedia artist, based in Berlin. In her work, she deals with the connection of new media and performance art and the effects of technology and Internet on the individual and society. She teaches and researches within the Master Degree Program Spiel && Objekt at the HfS Ernst Busch. In her research she is critically dealing with body images and power relations, based on gender identities and their (re) production in the analogue and digital world. In addition, she works on a contemporary artistic practice to utilise the subversive and creative potential of new technologies. Her focus lies on the development of alternative narratives and narrative formats that address the complexity of a technological, digitalised and globalised world and that operate beyond the structures of established power mechanisms. She is alumna of the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes, a permanent member of virtuellestheater and chairperson off the board of virtuellestheater e.V.
