Can we speak of an art scene in Gaza? What does practicing art amidst the Gaza blockade and mean? What are the challenges facing Gazan artists? In this conversation, Mohammad Hawajri, Raed Issa, Majed Shala, Basel El Maqousi, and Hazem Harb will talk about their work and experience as art practitioners living in one of the most difficult environments for an artist to be in. The artists are former participants in Darat al Funun’s Summer Academy (1999-2003).
