EXHIBITION OPENING NIGHT

 

The Void Project:

The Found Archive of Hani Jawherieh

 

Thursday, 7th November 2019 | 19:00 - 21:00

 

Join curator Azza El Hassan and Hani Jawharieh's daughter Hiba Jawherieh for the opening night of this exhibition as they explore and celebrate the rare personal collection of iconic Palestinian photographer and cinematographer Hani Jawherieh.

 

The Void Project: The Found Archive of Hani Jawherieh explores the personal collection of iconic Palestinian photographer and cinematographer Hani Jawherieh. In 1982, most of Jawherieh and his peers’ work was looted by the Israeli army. However, his private collection was salvaged by his wife Hind. Now, for the first time, this collection is being presented to the public.

The exhibition aims to explore what it means to have access to such material, which has been the target of destruction and abduction. It asks what it means for a Palestinian artist to be able to appropriate the work of another Palestinian artist, a luxury which is rarely possible.

This event is co-presented by The Void Project and The London Palestine Film Festival.
