April 27th- Dar Jacir: Care, Hospitality, and Criticality
Aline Khoury, Programs Director, Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art and Research
How does the street and locality inform the practice of Dar Jacir? How are practices of care, hospitality and solidarity embedded in our work? What are the pedagogical practices of the space and what can alternative models of education provide emerging artists in Palestine? We will take a look into Dar Jacir’s experience of running and sustaining an artist-led space in Bethlehem, Palestine, and share projects that were produced on-site, and which continue to shape and build on to its programs.
