An Xiao Mina

How come that the ‘ola k ase’ llama in Spain hasn’t met the ‘grass mud horse’ llama in China? Why aren’t the goats of the UK intermingling with the goats in Uganda? And what are Chinese anti-censorship memes trying to tell us about the global Internetz?

Technologist, writer and artist, An Xiao Mina is a relentless observer of the global internet and its decentralized creativity (a.k.a. memes!). Within these broad interests, she looks especially closely at the clash between an increasingly globalized culture and new nationalisms; the impact of irony and memes on social movements and viceversa; the cultural, political and technological specificity of the superpower of the future: China.
