P1 / P1 People - This is us / Janina Hantke

Janina Hantke


My curiosity in people has been driven by the many different characters surrounding me since I was a child. Today, I never fail to be amazed at the complexity and circularity of our actions and the inevitable praxadoxes that arise, particularly in the contexts of social systems. Recognizing the patterns, enabling them to be shaped and take effect, clearly structured and communicated – that is what I love doing. Being open to whatever comes next, even if it is the next pile of leaves.

Three questions for Janina Hantke

First contact with the digital era:
Prepping my final high school exams with my mother’s 386 and a modem that announced through a monotonous beeping sound that making a phone call was just not going to happen, as well as websites that took 10 minutes to load.

Another way to say “leave me alone, I’m done for the day”:
Headphones on, music loud, and dancing.

How does change succeed?
Inside you: exploring internally, experimenting externally
