Joanne Grüne-Yanoff is an internationally exhibiting American artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work examines the individual’s charged relationship with the outside world.
One aspect of her practice is independent exploration through multimedia artwork, another is community-based activism through art. Often, these two components join forces.
Over the last years, while actively exhibiting her work, Grüne-Yanoff has created a series of workshops with people who are expats, immigrants, migrants, refugees and native-born residents to provide coping tools, and expand strategies of understanding and integration. Through guided dialogues on topics such as home, belonging, work and nature, she helps people share their stories and build community while creating artwork together. Some of these workshops are now being made into a documentary by filmmaker Charlotta Hayes.
