5888181Basma alSharif: A Philistine
DateFriday 1st November 2019 to Sunday 15th December 2019
DescriptionA Philistine is a new exhibition centring around Basma alSharif's novella of the same name, which reveals the story of a central character (nicknamed Loza) on a train journey moving backwards in time through history. It begins in present day Lebanon, travelling through 1935 Palestine and ending in New Kingdom Egypt (16th-11th century B.C.E). Re-inventing historical train routes that coincide with the Haifa-Beirut-Tripoli (HBT) line and Palestine Railways, the story suggests what such a journey would be like today. Borders are undone and the various inhabitants of Greater Syria and North Africa intertwine along a train journey that escapes the imminent future and asks questions of the past and present.
Time(s)From Nov 1, Tue-Sat 11am-6pm, Sun 12noon-6pm, ends Dec 15
