Printed in Jerusalem

Curators: Baha Jubeh and guest-curator Abdel-Rahman Shabane
July – December 2020

Printed in Jerusalem: Mustamloun explores the relation between Jerusalemites and publications printed in their city—be their content political, educational, commercial, cultural or touristic—by probing the profession of the mustamly. It seeks to analyse the emergence and disappearance duality that was inherent to the publications of nascent social movements within the city. Those movements contended with the governing institutions and tools of censorship they imposed on Jerusalem’s urban fabric.

Palestinian Shores

Guest-Curator: Ahmad el-Aqra, 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.
