Hana Miletić was born in 1982, in Zagreb. She holds a degree in photography (Master of Fine Arts, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp) and she also has a master’s degree in art history and archeology (Vrije Universiteit Brussel). After she graduated, she continued to advance her studies at the Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht.
She works as a research assistant and research associate at the Department of Photography, at LUCA School of the Arts in Brussels.
She is an award-winning artist; she exhibited her work at numerous solo and group exhibitions in Croatia and abroad; she also authored several acclaimed artists’ books.
In her work, Hana Miletić documents, collects and questions the phenomenon of cultural identity. Documentary photography, that is, street-photography, is the foundation of her art practice, but the author does not approach it as a discipline that has to be homogenous and contained within the photographic medium. By using different printing techniques and non-photographic methods she wants to establish a connection between the multiple ways of reading an image and its form. Via her work, Miletić wants to initiate a dialogue which she considers necessary in capturing the mutable social reality. Therefore, she uses photography as a catalyst in her work process in order to conceptualize her artwork and installations.
