The Glass Gallery

The glass gallery is designed to complement the artistic propositions of this exhibition.

The gallery displays leaflets and wall texts with a selection of poetry, prose, infographics,
chronologies, and advocacy materials. Arranged around the themes of loss, erasure,
fragmentation, and resistance, these texts and figures map the political dispensation that
structures the art works exhibited in the museum’s main gallery.

The fact or process of losing something or someone.
Palestinians experience the ongoing loss of the land and human life. The loss of the land has taken numerous forms which manifests in a continual shrinking landscape. Numerous Israeli laws have been created to justify the confiscation of Palestinian land.

The process or state of breaking or being broken into fragments.
The topology of Palestine is continually undergoing fragmentation, in which the landscape
brims with checkpoints, partition wall, by-pass roads, sea barrier, and division into areas A, B and C segregating the Palestinians from each other and their land.

The removal of all traces of something; obliteration.
«the erasure of prior history»
Palestinians experience the perpetual obliteration of the landscape through decades of village and house destruction, the eradication of trees, plants and wildlife, and the construction of Israeli settlements.

The refusal to accept or comply with something.
Palestinians continually resist against the loss, fragmentation and erasure of their lives and the landscape through an ongoing history of numerous resistance strategies.
