Joan Jonas was born in New York City in 1936. She is a pioneer of video and performance art and one of the most important female artists to emerge in the late 1960s and early 1970s. She began her career in New York City as a sculptor. By 1968 she moved into what was then leading edge territory: mixing performance with props and mediated images, situated outside in natural and/or industrial environments. She has developed her performance to be a combination of live performance, videowork, drawing, reading, sound, music, and installation. Today she has become one of the most well-known artists in the contemporary artworld.

 She is exhibiting her work all over the world. She participated in Documenta 2002, São Paulo and Sydney Biennials and Yokohama Triennial in 2008, Venice Biennial in 2009.  

Her work in Ladonia Biennial: Reading Dante
