Presentation on future collaborations between KiT and the Palestine Art Academy by Casey, Sebastian and Mujahed
Following a visit to the MuCEM Palestine exhibition in Marseille earlier this month, the basis for a long term collaboration between KiT and the art academy in Ramallah has been established, and this presentation aims to initiate a conversation among the MFA students about what this collaboration might look like. In order to give a background on the relevant topics and tensions in Palestinian contemporary art, and art education, several works presented at the MuCEM exhibition will be discussed. These will provide the basis for a conversation on possible sites of collaboration between our academies, to be expanded in detail throughout the remainder of the semester.
