Samah Hijawi - Reflections on the Failure of the letter H(eitch)

vri 09/11/2018 > vri 30/11/2018

As part of her on-going work on the aesthetics of the political in artworks that allude to the history of Palestine, Samah Hijiaw has recently been working on the artistic and historical narratives related to the sculpture of Godefroid de Bouillon by Eugene Simonis on Place Royal in Brussels, and the painting of Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Census of Bethlehem (1566), in the Royal Museum on Fine Arts Belgium. During her residency, Samah Hijawi will develop a new chapter in her performance that explores the aesthetics of the political to think critically at hegemonic art histories and colonialism.
