Expo in Birzeit on the struggle of Palestinian women

13-2-2018

In partnership with the Birzeit University, Gallery One and Ramallah Cinema Club, Abdel Mohsen Qattan Foundation inaugurated on Saturday the ‘On Women in Revolutions’ exhibition at the University’s Museum with the participation of 25 Palestinian artists of various ages. The exhibition, which runs until April 10, is part of a wider research project on women and the revolution set for 2019. The event brings into prominence leading revolutionary women figures in the history of the Palestinian struggle, namely Leila Khaled and Dalal al- Moghrabi. Works varied between painting, photography, sculpture, video art and the display of old artifacts. The artists showcased the different aspects of the lives of Palestinian women through snapshots or portraits of them in the battlefields during the uprising and revolution or through short films and audio recordings. One participating fine artist, Khaled Hurani, said the event is an attempt to revisit the presence of Palestinian women in the rebellion through art. Bashar Alhrub another artist participating with his artwork, “Visible in War; Marginalized in Peace”, pointed to the many Palestinian women who had and still have a big role in this revolution but that are not very well known.
