About This Event

2019-2020 Global Engagement Lecture SeriesThe Theme: Displaced Persons
"As an artist of Palestinian descent I investigate through my drawings, photographs, films and paitings, cycles of repression and displacement, as well as the personal and political relationships between desire, denial and instability. One of the objectives of my creative practice, is to firmly place the experiences of Palestinian displacement in the international discourse on human rights, forced migration and the right of return of indigenous refugees." - John Halaka
