Nicolás Janowski works between art, documentary practices and curatorial processes. His work is linked to the concept of territory, the sense of belonging and hybrid identities from an intersectional perspective in Latin America. The aspect of historical context is central in his narrative as well as its diffusion through transmedial and expanded platforms. Janowski's late projects are characterized by using different mediums to support, complement, narrate and articulate stories: Offscreen sound, narrative sound, text, cartography and archival images are some key elements often used in Janowski’s projects to recreate the idea of territory and habitat.

When I enrolled with the PhMuseum mentorship programme, I had expected a session that would provoke ideas to move my work forward. The feedback I received was provided on a specific body of work, discussing each piece in detail. My experience surpassed my expectations and helped me to develop my work further.
