Tabita Rezaire

Tabita Rezaire describes herself as an intersectional preacher, techno-political researcher, and healer. In her work, she explores how racist and sexist power structures shape the development of identities, historiographies, and technologies in the contemporary era. Navigating digital, corporeal, and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality that affects our everyday life. She understands her artistic work, which stems from virtual encounters and deep imaginative forces, as an example of ›digital healing activism‹.
