The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians over the claims to the land has in many ways also been fought out through images via different mechanisms.

This talk addresses the questions of what happens when the activity of storytelling is fragmented in a case of historical disaster. And how are competing memories of forced displacement and exile circulating in wider social worlds, helping to reshape cultural imaginations and political orders in the Middle East?

The lecture will explore some of the ways in which images of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are represented, performed and re-negotiated in contemporary heritage and museum discourses, and consider the interventive possibilities as well as limitations of aesthetic and cultural memory acts in times of conflict.
