InterFem Collective e.V. is a Berlin-based self-organised migrant intersectional feminist organisation
that aims to empower migrant, refugee, BIPoC and queer FLINTA* folks by combining artistic expression
and activism. Our activism is decolonial and is performed through theatre, filmmaking, choreography,
writing and visual arts. Our activities are from and for FLINTA* artists and people, who want to explore
themselves through art.
Marachi was born a tomboy in Heraklion, Crete almost 40 years ago. The issues of gender, sexuality and
social justice were always critical for them. As a kid Marachi tried to survive the patriarchy by being
an athlete and by researching everything LGBTQI related before the existence of the internet. The
immigration to Athens, the capital of Greece and the leftwing movement was the only thing that made
sense at the time in order to escape and survive. This journey among cities, loves, political groups and
identities was documented in a blog of poetry, and was recently published in the collection "erogenous
zones" from the independent queer publishing label "mpataria" by the queer, non-binary performer, editor
and publisher Mochi Georgiou. Marachi works as a teacher in a public school in Berlin, being responsible
for sexual diversity, and performs in drag (or not) for political causes.
Sara ATH is a queer feminist rapper based in Berlin. She was born and grew up in Athens. However, she
has also lived in Cairo, where she is also coming from. She has been active in anarchist/anti-authoritarian
movements since 2008 and some years later decided to communicate her thoughts, experiences, and ideas for
a better world through music. In 2017 she released her first album, titled ‘Αντι-Σύλληψη‘ (Anti-Syllipsi).
2022 she published her new album "Amazons of the Concrete". In a male-dominated scene like Hip Hop, Sara
decided to become the voice of many femininities, queers and people who resist the ‘macho male’ culture
that dominates and is reproduced in many hip hop songs. At the same time, she aims to use her music as a
tool in the struggle against patriarchy, to support self-organisation and collective existence as they are
manifested in squares, autonomous spaces and occupations, in opposition to the prevalent logic of the
commercialisation of music.
