Confrontations/مواجهات

How to use art, design and communication tools to unpack geopolitical identities? Students in Qais Assali’s course Critical Geopolitics in Collaborative Practices questioned and created their own forms of cultural and artistic exchange with artists and designers from the Palestinian Association for Contemporary Art in Ramallah, Palestine facilitated by Asem Naser. Through a pop-up exhibition/intervention at the MSU Museum, students will display their local and global collaborative projects and exchanges. Students attempted to understand each others’ culture, deal with stereotypes from both sides, challenge borders of language, politics, geography, technology and time-scale as points of departure. Students mapped their own ideas and produced new methods, forms of cultural, design and artistic exchange to explore site, time, distribution strategies, digital storytelling, topography and typography.
