Stateless Nation at the Still Life exhibition in Leeds

Stateless Nation – Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti

Architects and artists Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti of Decolonizing Architecture present their exhibition and long term research stateless nation presented at the Venice biennale 2003. The work explores the current Palestinian condition, including suffering military occupation, undergoing alienation in one’s own native land, and exile. In particular the work investigates and observes the new relationships between territory, state and populations, and further reflects the new meanings and implications of this on the physical and social Palestinian experience of space.

Mujaawara vs. Decolonization
The importance of perceptions, references, and relationships

The choice of words and meanings reflect our references, and form our perceptions, and control our relationships… This has been detrimental in the case of the Palestinians; and we don’t seem to be healing from it…

I am choosing the word decolonization as an example of rootless words, and suggesting the word mujaawara instead, as a nurturing tooted word…

Munir Fasheh was born in Jerusalem in 1941, forced out in 1948 and since
then has been living basically in Ramallah. He taught math and physics at Birzeit University and in the United States. He worked with West Bank schools for 5 years in the 1970s. And later established Tamer Institute in Ramallah in 1989. In 1997, he established the Arab Education Forum at Harvard University’s Middle Eastern Studies department. He resigned in October 2007 and came back to Ramallah. The common thread of his work since 1971 has been how to build on what is abundant, beautiful,
inspiring, and healthy in people, communities, and
in culture…
