From 2013 onwards Jan has been the coordinator of the peer-reviewed Journal: Unlikely – Journal for Creative Arts.
Unlikely is a transdisciplinary journal, which aims to open unexpected spaces for artistic exchange and scholarly conversations across mediums, disciplines and continents. It offers artists working in practice-led research the chance to participate in and explore a range of practical and theoretical contemporary art concerns. An experiment in form, Unlikely engages its audience and contributors in a two-stage process of live event, presenting creative practitioners’ works, followed by peer-reviewed electronic publication. Unlikely works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.

From 2010 – 2015 Jan was a member of the Centre for Creative Arts, La Trobe University in Melbourne.

In his PhD thesis (title: “From Sound to Waves to Territories“) Jan investigates different aesthetic scenarios of the Anthropocene from a Media Arts and practice-led perspective. For more information please have a look at the website:

Currently Jan is a associated researcher for the areas of new media and new modes of communication at the Athens based NGO Poiein kai Prattein (to create and do) dedicated to the arts, cultural policies and urban planning.

In 2006 he contributed to two mayor studies as well as curated the new media section of the European Culture Capitals & Months-Network travelling exhibition “A Journey throughout the World – 20 Years of Cultural Capitals”. Both studies were conducted by Dr Hatto Fischer. Jan Hendrik focussed on the area of online practices of museums and media projects by the European Cultural Cities:

In 2004 he based his final MFA project on a series of conducted interviews with media practitioners on their relationship to free media, networking and urban culture and used his findings to demonstrate that this differs from the usual approach taken by local authorities wishing to improve the image of the city without heeding the need for a vital communication.
