The two-night program, by presenting recent and older video works by Palestinian artists, centers around the role of art in Palestinian history and the present, in relation to its changing strategies of resistance and perseverance. Divided into chapters on methodologies, such as dark humor, camouflage, and infiltration, the videos are also formal experiments produced by a specific context. Together with the discussions after the programs, the project as a whole, while taking into account the impossibility of comparing the situations in Palestine and Hungary, goes beyond national identities and addresses rather the complexities of contexts and situations, albeit ones from which strategies and experiences can be shared.
The program is in English.
