Re-surfacing the “Abandoned Property”

Wednesday April 10th, 2pm

Bethlehem: Dar al Kalima

This interactive workshop will consist of an exploration of Book Arts as a vehicle for investigating and redressing the colonial implications of stolen property, whether the physical acquisition of land and resources; or the cognitive aspect of the occupation, including attempts of manipulation/erasure of history, culture and discourse. The discussion will include a demonstration of bookmaking techniques alongside an analysis of Palestinian artists and authors utilizing the book and archive as an artistic, poetic and critical trajectory.
