Exhibition Opening 'Sites of Return'

The Ramallah Municipality programme for Qalandiya International 2016 explores notions of return—restlessness, rupture, rebellion, re-growth and radical forms of action—inviting activists, storytellers and artists to engage with otherwise underutilized sites across the city and its surroundings. Vignettes, tours and performances interlink spaces across histories and geographies, excavating stories in and of these spaces. The programme makes temporary use of buildings and public spaces, reinvigorating these sites through pop-up programmes.
