For the exhibition ‚Subcontracted Nations‘, curated by Yazid Anani
28 June – 29 Sept 2018
A.M. Qattan Foundation, Ramallah
The group exhibition ‚Subcontracted Nations‘ questioned different concepts of the term nation. Many parts of the world are experiencing major changes in their national concepts through rhetorical and political discourses. The exhibition took its title from the proliferation of subcontracting processes we are witnessing today – whether it is the ’sub‘ of contracting health care or the privatisation of public resources including education. ‚Alter-Nationality‘ addresses the issue of identity and resilience building in a crisis situation and is a multimedia installation based on historical and contemporary material from the ADS (Arab Development Society), an experimental living and working community in Jericho since 1948.
