    Panel Discussion | Picasso In Palestine

    Panel Discussion | Picasso In Palestine

    This panel discussion was recorded following a screening of the Khaled Hourani's film Picasso in Palestine (2012). Hear Miriam Deprez (photojournalist and PhD candidate, Griffith University), Dr Jamal Nabulsi (diaspora Palestinian writer and researcher), and Remah Naji (Member, Justice for Palestine, Magan-djin) in conversation, facilitated by Dr Samid Suliman (Senior Lecturer, Migration and Security at Griffith University).

    This discussion contextualises the film against the decades-long history of the occupation of Palestine, reflects on the im/mobilities that it documents, and instigates an important discussion of the role and duty of the arts to act (transnationally and transversally) against dispossession, occupation, state violence, and genocide.
