Lecture-perfomance by Samah Hijawi followed by a debate

From her on-going work on the performativity and aesthetics of the political in art, Samah Hijawi presents parts of her new project which brings monumental artworks in Belgium, together with seminal artworks from Palestine. Through a narrative that travels across time, the performance explores the signs and symbols of history, of power and of loss in art, while reflecting on how these resonate in our urban spaces and our contemporary lives today.
