interviews XenoEntities Network (June 2019)
XenoEntities Network (XEN) is an open-community platform based in Berlin and organised by Lou Drago, Pedro Marum, and Zander Porter. XenoEntities Network’s curated programs organise performances, screenings, discussions, readings, panels, and also Assemblages which are free-access gatherings where community members propose topics and ideas within the scope of the platform. In their words, “Our programmes revolve around contemporary art and philosophical-theoretical themes such as posthumanism, xenofeminism, cyborgs and prosthetics, surveillance technologies, and virtual reality, amongst others”.

XenoEntities Network debates are centred in a queer/feminist/gender context embracing discourses of anti-hegemonic patriarchal mentalities. Furthermore, XenoEntities Network is interested in diversity and inclusivity on digital platforms, and also, in anti-racial practices. Although based in Berlin, the collective has also initiated programs in cities, including London, Cologne, Krakow, Lisbon, Athens and Melbourne.
