Juliana Kolberg (Director)
My main areas of interest are empowerment, disabilities, queerness, intersectionality as well as the criticism of discrimination in the German language and (concepts of) awareness, from the perspectives of queer Black diasporic movements. Central to my work are post- and decolonial theories, Black Feminist Thought, and colonial continuities & narratives in the connection of theory and practice. I studied Social Sciences (B.A.) with a focus on Gender Studies, Education, and Political Science.
Besides the implementation of the thematic foci in the form of networking and through the joint conceptualisation & implementation of different interdisciplinary (educational) events in the shape of conferences, readings, film screenings, performances, workshops, roundtable discussions, symposia, etc., I am also the general contact and responsible for a coherent overall concept for all projects of xart splitta.
Taye Naizghi (Coordination #ThinkingCommunitiesSolidaric)
At xart splitta I am the project coordination of the #ThinkingCommunitiesSolidaric project. I studied Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and at the Universiteit van Amsterdam with a thematic focus in literary, cultural and discourse analysis.
My other areas of interest are: Community work, queerness, intersectionality, (Anti-Black) Racism and Decoloniality, Empowerment, and the conceptualisation, semantics and practical implementation of critical theory and liberation, especially at the intersection with technology and digitality. My work runs along the concepts and movements of Abolitionism, Black Feminism, Decolonial theory, queer and gender theory, critical cultural studies and cross-community solidarity.

At xart splitta I am responsible for the project coordination of the project The Living Archives. I studied social work in my bachelor’s degree and completed a master’s degree in practical research in social work and early education at Alice Salomon University of Applied Sciences. As part of my master’s thesis, I researched on how people from the Afghan diaspora deal with ghosts.
Other areas of interest: Life in the Diaspora, Racism, Critique of Capitalism, Mental Health, Critical Social Work, Community Work, and Critical Research on Discrimination.
In addition to my work at xart splitta, I am doing a PhD in Educational Science at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz on strategies of politically positioned social workers in dealing with capitalist conditions in their practice.
