Guided tour followed by a conversation about the exhibitions Past Disquiet and Signal

The 10/04/2024 at 18:30

with Salman Nawati, Rasha Salti, Elias Sanbar and Marion Slitine

For a country engaged in a relentless struggle for recognition and legitimacy, for a country populated by communities that have endured multiple internal displacements, the Palestinian territories (as defined by the Oslo Accords) lay claim to a surprisingly large number of museums. They are not merely a strategy for recognition. Rather, they testify to Palestinians’ attachment to cultural practice and embody acts of commemoration that preserve and transmit traces of lived experience, creativity and imagination. The speakers in this discussion will present and relate two different but emblematic Palestinian museums: the Sahab Museum by Hawaf collective, a virtual museum bringing together a collection of digital and material works of art connecting the creation of Gaza with that of the rest of the world and the Palestinian Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, a collection of artworks donated to defend the Palestinian cause.


The discussion will be in French with interventions in English. No French subtitles will be provided.

Tickets for this event grant access to all the current exhibitions of the Palais de Tokyo. This discussion will take place in Salle 37.
