is a performance artist, activist, and perpetual migrant.
Her performances deal with de-exotifying and de-mystifying the positions of
so-called sexual or political deviants. In them, the body is used as a tool to transgress
the boundaries of the public space, and to call into question the public‘s
‘democratic’ limitations. She started co-ordinating street interventions and direct
actions in the West Bank and performing in events in the formative years of Palestine-
Israel‘s queer scene. After moving to Berlin she gradually placed her work
on stage. Her works include: Pussy. An Ongoing Performative Research (2018), No
Democracy Here (2017), Queerhana: This is a Free Zone (2017), Terrorist Superstars
(2016). Her work has been presented at the 10th Berlin Biennale, Athens Museum
of Queer Arts AMOQA, Kampnagel, Transmediale festival, among other institutions;
she also performs in streets, social centers and queer bars in Europe and
Palestine-Israel. Liad is a spokesperson for sex workers’ rights and a founder of a
Berlin peer project for migrant sex workers at Hydra e.V.
