Becoming Authentic

The project is an exhibition during Qalandia International 2016 that invites practitioners from different disciplines to collaborate in thinking through what it means to be indigenous. The exhibition takes as its starting point the theme of return proposed by this year’s Qalandia International Biennial. One is compelled to ask the question: what does it mean to return to the land? Is this return symbolic? Is it a return of the real? The project and exhibition will be to approach those questions through exploring the relationship with nature as natives, what it means for plants to return, what is native to the land.
