Katja Buch Madsen

Article

Katja is a feminist activist and intercultural facilitator. She currently lives in a commune on the Danish countryside but has previously studied in Ghana and Tanzania. Through her work at Danida Fellowship Centre she has been lucky to meet bright heads from all over the world, create community and build bridges across cultures. Holding an MA in African Studies, Katja is a critical thinker seeking to challenge stereotypical images and misrepresentations. Her thesis problematised sensationalistic depictions of female genital cutting and revealed a deeply dynamic and politicised practice intersecting with structural violence. As feminist nerd, she is always on the lookout for how patriarchy, capitalism and colonialism interfere with people’s rights. She is curious about the felt and embodied aspects of oppression and art as a platform of healing.
