For the last decade, Lisi Raskin has been engaged in ways of being that embrace what they now understand to have always been their trans and disabled embodiment. They have reshaped their creative and curricular practices into solo and together adventures that support them as they unlearn assimilationist and settler, white supremacist patterns of relation. Their work takes the form of music, painting, sculpture, large-scale installations, and most recently a book on engaged and inclusive pedagogy.

Raskin has exhibited internationally at institutions including Kunsthaus Graz, Casino Luxembourg, the Frankfurter Kunstverein, the Contemporary Art Center, Vilnius, PS1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Center for Curatorial Studies/Hessel Museum at Bard College, and the Rubin Museum of Art. Their web projects have been published in Triple Canopy magazine, with The Dia Foundation, and on Creative Time Global Reports. They have built large-scale environments at the 11th International Istanbul Biennale, the 2nd Athens Biennale, and the 3rd Singapore Biennale. They have installed site-sensitive sound projects in the 1st Time Machine Biennale of Contemporary Art, D-O Ark Underground, and the Momentum 7 Biennale of Nordic Art. Their book In Practice: From Higher Education to Liberatory Transformation will be published by Punktum Books in their 2023/24 catalog.
