Ivana moved at some point from an already boring city to an even more boring one - to Hildesheim - in order to study. There she completed her diploma studies in Creative Writing and would have bet VERY much money (which she didn't have) against it if someone had told her that she would voluntarily move to neighboring Hanover ten years later...Now she calls Hanover and endboss her home with full conviction, after having wasted some time of her life after finishing university, for example, building up the marketing department of a completely stupid and unnecessary tech startup in Berlin or writing averagely original campaigns for averagely uninteresting "world market leaders" in advertising agencies. In addition to various other career detours and dead ends, she has also been working as an artist since 2011 and was a master student with Candice Breitz and Eli Cortiñas at the HBK in Braunschweig from 2019 to 2020. In volunteer work, she is involved little to not at all - and on principle. At endboss she takes care of the topics cultural urban development, art in construction and communication on all levels.
It is her private and professional concern to combine artistic, urban and entrepreneurial practice in such a way that it is at least a little embarrassing for all those who claim that one cannot combine the one with the other. Because she has also taken on the textual responsibility at endboss, she can simply adapt her job title freely according to her respective form of the day and/or her phasewise varying life goals, largely unnoticed and autonomously.
