“As an artist, I am convinced that art can create spaces for self-determination, mutual learning, and appreciation. As an art mediator, I experience how these spaces often only emerge where people already have access to art anyway. As a mediator I have the opportunity to accompany the process of the creation of art in my own interest with the future patrons. I see the method of the New Patrons as an invaluable opportunity for people to get involved who are too often overheard or not taken seriously.”
Hannah Mevis works as an artist and art mediator. With her multidisciplinary way of working she questions the perception of the human body and the social structures embodied in it. After graduating in Arts, she completed the post-academic studio program at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts (HISK) in Ghent, Belgium. From 2016 to 2020, she was an active member of the Neuer Saarbrücker Kunstverein e.V. In addition to an active artistic practice, she has been designing workshops for children, young people and adults since 2015, in which she is equally concerned with the mediation of contemporary art as well as with providing access to a self-determined, creative work of the participants. She works as a mediator for New Patrons in Saarland, Germany.
