Based between Beirut and Berlin, Jessika Khazrik’s interdisciplinary practice as an artist, writer, technologist, producer and DJ tackles the big themes symptomatic of the age we live in: disruption, technology, toxicity, gender, and perceptions of identity.
Scavenging sounds from the debris of online media and militarised ads & technologies, her sonicscapes intimately investigate the future of the internet and surveillance. Through incomputable Arabic rhythms, Jessika uses spaces of congregation to search for locally entrenched universalisms that could collectively respond to the dystopias of our current times.
She’ll be performing at Supersonic alongside 3D/real-time visual artist Nurah Farahat. Born in Cairo and based in Bremen, Nurah’s work ranges from developing VR simulations at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence Bremen to creating live visuals for musicians and collectives, including M.I.A., Queeraspora and La6izi.
