What is xart splitta?

xart splitta was founded in 2012 and is a non-profit association working in the field of intersectionality, antidiscrimination and (historical) political education. Our formats and offers range from workshops and consultations, art & cultural productions to public discussions, conferences and symposia.

The focus of xart splitta is on dealing with discriminatory structures of various kinds within society and on the elaboration and development of possible  strategies and interventions against these structures. We follow an intersectional approach and rely in particular on Black Feminist Thought as well as post- and decolonial theory. We draw our inspiration from the relentless efforts of various basic political movements and organizations that – in Germany and beyond – past and present – are and have been active against interwoven violent structures and oppressive mechanisms. As part of our work, we organise events in various formats. We try to address different target groups and focus on the promotion and support of empowerment processes of both individuals and groups.

If you would like to know what exactly xart splitta does, have a look at our events and past events in the menu.

We also conduct workshops and trainings on the above mentioned topics. If you are interested, do get in touch!
