Organised by the Palestinian Museum in 2017, the Jerusalem Lives exhibition is an exploration of the lived experience of Jerusalemites in the shadow of colonialism. Its catalogue serves as a comprehensive record of the artworks and objects featured in the exhibition. These artworks shed light on various facets of life in the city and on its people’s struggle amid Israeli policies of annexation, displacement and ethnic cleansing.

Within the same context, and in partnership with the Institute for Palestine Studies, the Palestinian Museum is concurrently launching two distinct volumes of essays (Arabic and English) selected from the hawliyat al-Quds and Jerusalem Quarterly journals respectively. Edited by Salim Tamari, PhD, The volumes seek to trace the course of Jerusalem’s modernity with a selection of essays that shed light on the lives of Jerusalemites who witnessed pivotal moments in Palestine’s history that transformed the social fabric of the city.
