Ahlam Shibli, Untitled (Occupation no. 30), al-Khalil, Palestine, 2016–17, chromogenic print, 100 x 150 cm. Al-Sahleh Street, al-Qaitoun neighborhood, Old Town, al-Khalil, October 20, 2016. The Abu al-Rish checkpoint located in al-Sahleh Street, south of al-Haram al-Ibrahimi (Abraham’s Mosque/Cave of the Patriarchs), is named after the Abu al-Rish mosque and shrine next to it. The checkpoint separates the Abu Sunaina and al-Qaitoun neighborhoods from the neighborhoods of the Old Town. It also separates the neighborhood from the oldest school in al-Khalil, the al-Ibrahimeyeh School, and from al-Hajariya Girls School. Palestinians are allowed to pass only on foot. The infrastructure of the checkpoint was expanded in July 2016, and since it reopened the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have prohibited Palestinians between the ages of sixteen and thirty-four from passing.

The FHCB Symposium

Mobilités : a cycle of four meetings proposed by Jean-François Chevrier, art historian, professor at the École des beaux-arts de Paris and exhibition curator. Today, more than ever, the study of artistic forms, and specifically photographic works, calls for a historical and critical examination of the forms and language of mobility. The four meetings will show how photography can play a part in this endeavour when it’s associated with social experimentation as well as with the arts of the image and the body in motion.

 

Introduction by Jean-François Chevrier
Thursday, December 14 2017 from 6.30 to 8.30 p.m.
