Please join us for a live screening and conversation with artist Tali Keren, Nadia L. Abu El-Haj, Professor and co-director of the Center for Palestine Studies at Columbia University, and Kareem Estefan, writer, critic and PHD candidate in Modern Culture and Media at Brown University. The three will discuss a new work by Keren titled Un-Charting, on view at MOCAD’s Black Box gallery through August 8, that explores the way myth, fantasy, and western Christian evangelism have shaped the historical legacy of Israel-Palestine. Using the film as a point of departure, the conversation will center questions around the formation of political ideology and structural violence—through narrative building and archeological practices—exploring these at the intersection of personal identity and ethno-nationalism. This conversation will be followed by a Q&A and will take place on Zoom.
