Mai Ling Speaks is a series of online performances, lectures and interviews connecting the active voices that are dealing with the anti-Asian ramifications of these exceptional times. How can we find community and solidarity at a time where anti-Asian xenophobia related to Covid-19 is escalating? What are the tools needed to contest this new normality and what everyday practices of solidarity can be performed?
Mai Ling Speaks is a subversive format aiming to diverge the discourse towards the individuals and communities affected while, at the same time, creating a discursive platform that bridges artistic practices with theory.

Part 1. (0"04'): The beautiful alien girl (7’15”, HD video with sound, colour | 2019) by Mai Ling
Part 2. (7'44"): An online interview with co-founders of Korientation – Jee-Un Kim, Sina Schindler and Kimiko Suda

About Korientation:
Korientation is a (post) migrant self-organised group and a cultural and educational network of Asian-Germans. Korientation pursues the goal of creating presence and expression to the diverse realities of Asian-germans, their life and day-to-day experiences.
An essential part of their work is to strengthen their cultural and political self-representation in order to influence the development of a diverse German society. They organise various activities and projects where racist cliches and exclusionary practices are questioned and where the view of the different realities of BIPOC can be expanded.
