Xinan is an activist, com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­er, DJ, and artist. Xinans artis­tic activ­i­ties include works on paper (char­coal, aquarelle, silkscreen) and poet­ry (writ­ing, images, sound). Xinan is con­cerned with fem­i­nist and non-bina­ry per­spec­tives, found­ed the pod­cast Diaspor.Asia and orga­nizes per­for­mance evenings, fes­ti­vals, par­ties, and workshops.


“The cur­rent glob­al cri­sis deep­ens the mar­gin­al­iza­tion and sys­temic oppres­sion of racial­ized groups in Ger­many, espe­cial­ly when con­sid­er­ing the inter­sec­tions of gen­der, dis­abil­i­ty and class.”


Xinan would like to use the home.frankfurt.telaviv web res­i­den­cy to draw an emo­tion­al land­scape of life as a non-bina­ry artist. The focus of the work will be a con­cept of home that defines a place of yearn­ing for peace, belong­ing, secu­ri­ty, and sol­i­dar­i­ty in a self-cho­sen family.
