Palestinian Shores
2021

This upcoming exhibition highlights the Mediterranean coast as a central element of Palestinian life. It is an exploration of life in the coastal terrain from the 18th century to the present. The exhibition will provide insights into the coast’s vibrant cities, rich countryside and landscape, layered urban, rural and nomadic social life, including post-1948 diasporas. The research-based exhibition aims to investigate and reconstruct a society diverse in its classes, economy and cultures, and to examine the Nakba and its effects on the present and future of Palestinian society and imaginaries.
