This project focuses on the patterns of representing death in the Palestinian art since 1948. The research will address three specific types of death: the victim, the martyr and the suicide martyr. The project examines the relationship between the institutional aspect and features of the Palestinian art field, and the forms of standardizing death and how they work. Based on the results, a systematic theoretical framework will be proposed to examine ways of facing death through art in the current Arab societies.
