Scholar Lecture: CURATING “JERUSALEM ACTUAL AND POSSIBLE”: POLITICAL LESSONS FROM A NON-EUCLIDEAN CITY

Clark/Oakley Humanities Fellow Kirsten Scheid presents “Curating Jerusalem Actual and Possible: Political Lessons from a non-Euclidean City.”

Treating an exhibition not as a representation but a “system of action,” reveals how it provides participants with a “critical space,” i.e., a semi-physical, sensorially alter-space. In this lecture, Scheid examines an exhibition she co-curated in 2018 in Jerusalem as a process-space where actors could analyze the bundling of their lives into incomplete concepts, such as “Palestinian” or “Israeli Arab,” or artificially exclusive ideologies, such as “binationalist coexistence” or “nationalist resistance.”
