On Palestine –2007-2016 apprehends the lives and landscapes, histories and narratives of Palestine and Palestinians through encounters with the architectures and technologies of dispossession and oppression in the ruination of Palestinian space, including the Palestinian villages of 1948, the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, and the militarised carceral geography of the Naqab. On Palestine brings into our field of vision that which is disappeared, buried and under threat of destruction. Tenacity, resilience and life exist alongside loss and grief.
Three special events will take place during the exhibition featuring prominent scholars in the field, a conversation with the artist and a film screening:
1. 27th June - opening event
