Episode 34 in English: Punk Poet-Performer Cyborg Andrea!

We are so excited for this episode!  We guarantee you’ll love getting to know Andrea through this.  We’ll give you all a heads up when their book is available (set to come out Jan. 2019)!

Andrea Abi-Karam is an arab-american genderqueer punk poet-performer cyborg,
writing on the art of killing bros, the intricacies of cyborg bodies, trauma & delayed
healing. Their chapbook, THE AFTERMATH (Commune Editions, 2016), attempts to
queer Fanon’s vision of how poetry fails to inspire revolution. Simone White selected
Andrea’s second assemblage Villainy for forthcoming publication with Les Figues. They
toured with Sister Spit March 2018 & are hype to live in New York.
EXTRATRANSMISSION (Kelsey Street Press, Jan. 2019) is their first book.

Episode 31 in English: Coptic Babe Coptic Dyke!

This episode, we spoke to artist Caitlin (KT) who is Coptic Egyptian-Irish, and is a total badass who is creating space for the mixed identity.  We talked about being mixed and having parents from two different parts of the world; we also talked about KT’s art and what is inspiring her pieces.   This episode means a lot because the experience of being mixed does not get highlighted as its own identity very often.

An upcoming exhibit where people can see the piece Coptic Babe Coptic Dyke will be at Mark for Redaction in New York, which details can be found for here:

We’ll add the details for another upcoming exhibit/workshop that KT mentioned here shortly!

You can contact KT at [email protected] or follow her on Instagram (check our Instagram post for her handle).
