More about Astrit Ismaili

Astrit Ismaili (1991, RKS) is a performance artist from Kosovo, based in Amsterdam. Their artistic practice features bodies that consist of both imaginary and material realities, using alter egos, body extensions and wearable music instruments to embody different possibilities for becoming.

Within their practice, the act of singing is used to explore the role of voice in pop culture and identity politics. Ismaili’s central interest is how bodies are constructed and interpreted through contemporary society, but also how they are heard, asking what it means to sonify a body politic.

Exploring the politics of the body and voice, they aim to disrupt prevailing narratives around representation, imagining new and utopian ways of thinking; how bodies inhabit and occupy space.
