⚰︎ Jessika Khazrik nurtures a plural, antimilitarist practice. Born in year 7291 of her grandmother‘s enduring calendar, raised in a club at the outskirts of Beirut and brought up in the vicinity of a quarry secretly contaminated by toxic waste, she has been making music, performing and DJing while being active in struggles for environmental justice and public science since early adolescence.

⚰︎ She performs, exhibits, publishes, teaches and advises internationally. Khazrik holds BAs in Linguistics and in Theatre from the Lebanese University(LB) and a MS in Art, Culture and Technology from MIT(US) where she was awarded the Ada Lovelace prize. Jessika is the founder and caretaker of “Reading Computers قراءة الحواسيب”, Post-coronialism, “AATMA ✦ عتمة”  and “خريطة الظلام Cartography of Darkness”.
