Mala (Hamza Badi)

Mala: (they/them) is a gender non-conforming performance artist, writer and political activist from Morocco. Their performances and writings emerge from their personal experiences in daily life. Mala seeks to amplify the visibility of the queer & trans* North African, Amazigh, Muslim refugee communities. They believe that decolonizing art is a necessary political act of affirming existence against the global attack and the marginalization of the cultures, histories and collective artistic work of POC and people from the South. Mala is also an anti-capitalist and a decolonial revolutionary who takes intersectionality as a tool for fighting against capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy, ableism, and all forms of oppression and injustice.
