She is concerned with fragility, accompanied by restlessness and brittleness, which she artistically works on. Since 2015 she has represented the field of cultural education and art mediation at the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin as an honorary professor. Mona Jas was a member of the faculty of documenta 14 in Kassel and Athens, GR. She was also head of the Mediation of the 10th Berlin Biennale for contemporary art.
