International Academy of Arts Palestine presents Disarming Design for Palestine during Qalandiya International
IAAP, Ramallah, 27 October – 15 November 2014
Qalandiya International (QI) is a biennial event that takes place across Palestinian cities, towns, and villages. It focuses on exhibiting contemporary Palestinian and international art, highlighting valuable architectural sites, and includes talks, walks and performances. As part of the participation and presentation of the International Academy of Art Palestine, the academy presented Disarming Design from Palestine with our newest array of objects.

At the historic room at the entrance of the Academy in Ramallah we presented our collection of designs, that were also available for purchase. A video by Ali Aldeek gave insight in the processes and dynamics of the create shop during which the designs are developed, and exchange with the artisans takes place.

  • The students of the International Academy of Arts organised a collaborative event with preparing maftoul, and alongside we opened our exhibition.
  • Qalandia International 2014
  • Qalandiya International (Qi) was founded in 2012 as a joint contemporary art event that takes place every two years across Palestinian cities and villages. Qi aims to place Palestine on the world’s cultural map by producing a series of exhibitions, as well as performances, talks, film screenings, workshops and tours, that open up channels for dialogue and exchange, both locally and internationally. As a partnership between art and culture organizations, Qi works collectively to join forces to unify a fragmented geography. The second edition of Qalandia International in 2014 featured works by over 100 Palestinian and international artists, collated in a series of newly commissioned art projects under the theme Archives, Lived and Shared, highlighting the role of archives in shaping Palestine’s past and present: “Over the years, Palestinian heritage has been repeatedly subjected to upheaval, uprooting, and even looting and theft. This means that for decades, questions concerning the roles played by archives, what they preserve, and who has ownership of them have been hotly contested. Arguably, the archival process has a key part to play in gathering the threads of Palestine’s past and present and shaping its future; it is for this reason that Qalandiya International has chosen the topic of archives, their role in the formation and preservation of national identity, and the importance of public access to them as the underlying theme of this year’s festival.”
