Jasmina Al-Qaisi

Jasmina Al-Qaisi is a poet and a writer for voice and paper. She writes as she speaks in her own English, transfers poetry in performative acts and sound with gastronomy into radio formats; often in close communication with her grandmother and her families of choice. Al-Qaisi sometimes appears as Schnelle Musikalische Hilfe spreading new earworms; a Walking Scientist visiting herself in the future; a Bird Watcher Watcher; the only agent for the Self-Entitled-Self-Entitlement-office; and one who speaks the Language of Questions Marks, embodying insects, psychological processes, and the state of things such as the weather. She often makes waves on free, independent, temporary, mobile, and public radios. Since 2013, Al-Qaisi has been involved in the arts in various ways: by developing, conceptualizing and writing about various forms of being together otherwise. As an art writer, she employs poetic and alternative forms to critique and tell stories together with others.
