Liad Hussein Kantorowicz
Liad Hussein Kantorowicz is a performance artist and activist from Israel-Palestine. She’s worked on themes such as de-exotifying and de-mystifying the positions of those considered sexual or political deviants and by extension on minority rights, migration, anti-apartheid/anti-Israeli occupation, queer issues and sex work. Her performances moved from the queer scene in Israel-Palestine and Berlin to bigger stages such as Transmediale and Ballhaus Ost in Berlin and Kampnagel in Hamburg. She’s a perpetual migrant and an MA student at the SODA program for performance art at UDK. She is the first outed spokesperson for sex workers’ rights in Israel. In Berlin, she co-manages a Peer Project for migrant sex workers at Hydra e.V..
