Bino Byansi Byakuleka

Bino Byansi Byakuleka was born in 1979 in Kebale, Uganda and is a Textile Artist who currently lives in Berlin. In 2010 August he became a refugee in Germany and spent almost two years in the refugee camp in Breitenburg near Passau in Bavaria. In August 2012 he started a protest tent in Passau Klostergarten and in October he joined the refugee protest camp in Berlin‐Kreuzberg at Oranienplatz. Since then he is a full time political activist to change the asylum system in Germany and the LGBTIQ rights. In 2013 he founded the African Refugees Union (ARU) and in 2014 the campaign WE ARE BORN FREE! MY RIGHT IS YOUR RIGHT! which is aiming at refugees being intergrated increasingly in everyday life. In this context he gives many workshops in schools, universities and other institutions. In January 2015 he published the German essay Mein Name ist Bino Byansi Byakuleka in cooperation with Lydia Ziemke with the Berlin digital publishing house mikrotext, which will also be published with mikrotext in an English version.
